Education Minister Liz Sandals has released a statement on the status of bargaining with the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO).
She says the province has “tabled a comprehensive proposal to the ETFO, that is in line with the tentative agreements reached with the other teacher federations. In particular, the offer presented mirrors the tentative agreement with Ontario Secondary School Federation (OSSTF). No additional bargaining dates have been set.”
Sandals goes on to say that the ETFO Executive is meeting with local union presidents on Monday and we are hopeful that they will consider this settlement offer seriously.
She says they are hopeful that a settlement can be reached.
