We are pleased to announce that the Waterloo Region District School Board and OSSTF District 24 have ratified their local tentative agreement. The agreement will expire August 31, 2017.
“The ratification of a local agreement with OSSTF is a demonstration of the hard work and dedication of all involved. Steady and respectful discussion on both sides has created a productive working relationship for OSSTF members and the WRDSB,” says WRDSB Chairperson Kathleen Woodcock. “I look forward to working together, and supporting our shared commitment to student achievement and well-being.”
District 24 Bargaining Unit President Sherry Freund states, “After a lengthy but productive bargaining process, the deal will now comprise the second part of a two part collective agreement, with both local and central agreements being combined into one document. The District 24 Teachers and Occasional Teachers Bargaining Unit looks forward to moving ahead with a unified focus on the great work our members do in supporting student achievement in the classroom.”
OSSTF District 24 represents 1800 secondary teachers, and occasional teachers in the WRDSB.
