The Province of Ontario has reached a tentative deal with the French Speaking education unions in the Province, AEFO, ACÉPO and AFOCSC.
ONTARIO - The province of Ontario has reached a tentative agreement with the Association des enseignantes et des enseignants franco-ontariens (AEFO) and the Association des conseils scolaires des écoles publiques de l'Ontario (ACÉPO) and the Association franco-ontarienne des conseils scolaires catholiques (AFOCSC):
Education Minister Stephen Lecce says they made the agreement yesterday.
"Our Government is pleased to announce a tentative deal has been reached between the Crown, AEFO teachers, and the school board trustees' associations. During this unprecedented time, we are committed to providing stability for our students and staff through the deal reached with French-language educators. In this negotiation, we advanced student priorities - including lower class sizes, enhanced special education supports, and the protection of full-day kindergarten. We look forward to delivering remaining deals for the benefit of students, parents and staff."
This is the fourth tentative agreement reached by the government with teachers’ and education workers’ unions, preceded by OECTA, ETFO, and ETFO EW, and two ratified agreements with CUPE and EWAO, which provides stability and certainty to more Ontario students and families.
