TORONTO – The union representing 55,000 education workers in Ontario schools has reached a tentative deal with the Crown and the Council of Trustee Associations (CTA) in central talks. The union is calling an end to its province-wide work-to-rule job action.
CUPE members have been without a contract since August 31st, 2014. CUPE has been bargaining under a new process whereby central negotiations are happening concurrently with talks at board levels across the province. The tentative agreement covers central issues negotiated on behalf of education workers in all four school board systems: English public and Catholic, and French public and Catholic.
