DEAL REACHED!

Yesterday, at 4:30 p.m., after two days of continued bargaining, the statutory teachers of  Eastern OECTA and the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario concluded bargaining and reached a tentative agreement.  Pending ratification, the new collective agreement will be in effect from September 1, 2008, through to August 31st, 2012.

The new agreement has successfully incorporated all items agreed upon at the Provincial Discussion Table (PDT).  Furthermore, many local issues have also been addressed and agreed to.

Details of the deal will be shared with teachers at the ratification meeting which is being held on Tuesday, November 18th.  The Unit General Meeting which was scheduled to be held on the same evening will immediately proceed after the ratification meeting and vote.  The time and location of the meetings are as follows:

Kemptville Agricultural College (Guelph Campus)
830 Prescott Street (Hwy 44)
W.B. George Centre
5:30- 8:00 p.m.
(a light dinner will be served)

It is very important that all teachers who are able, attend. 

A huge thanks go out the teachers who served on the bargaining team:  Andrew Donihee, Dale Fobert, Ken O’Brien, Daniele Rae, Jim Roy, Mary-Lynne Sauve.  They displayed fortitude through to the end.  And another big thanks to Grace DaSilva, our provincial collective bargaining liaison.  We are indebted to her dedication and guidance.

STAFF REPS:  PLEASE COPY AND ANNOUNCE TO ALL TEACHERS
