Labour Relations - OSSTF Central Agreement Ratified

The central agreements with teachers and education workers represented by the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF) have now been ratified. This follows from the ratification of central agreements with the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario (ETFO) last month.

With the central bargaining process now completed, local bargaining continues between the OCDSB and local bargaining units of the OSSTF and ETFO.

Central negotiations are done by the provincial representatives of the employee (unions) and the employer (the Ontario Public School Boards’ Association represents the OCDSB). The government, through the Ministry of Education, is also required to participate. Decisions about which items are negotiated locally or centrally is determined by the central table. Those items not considered “central” are then handled at a local level.
