The Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO) has reached tentative central agreements with the Province.
Separate tentative central agreements have been negotiated for ETFO’s teacher/occasional teacher and education worker members.
“This has been a very prolonged and difficult bargaining process,” said ETFO President Sam Hammond. “We are very grateful for the support and unwavering solidarity of our members, and the public who have continued to stand up for public education and the supports that our students and educators need now and in the future.”
The decision to accept the agreements now rests with ETFO’s 83,000 members.
ETFO will review details of its tentative central agreements and ratification vote process with ETFO local leaders and members next week.
The union is suspending strike action immediately pending the results of its central ratification votes.
