Elementary teachers vote in favour of 3-year contract
Strikes at your student’s elementary schools are now a thing of the past.
The Elementary Teacher’s Federation of Ontario, the Ontario Public School Boards’ Association and the Council of Trustees have voted to accept a new 3-year contract with the province.
Teachers and occasional teachers voted 97-percent in favour and education workers gave the deal a 94-percent nod in favour.
Class sizes will not be getting any larger under the new terms and a proposed $150-million in education cuts were withdrawn.
