Tentative agreement reached with CUPE

The Ontario Public School Boards’ Association (OPSBA) is pleased to announce that the Council of Trustees’/School Board Associations (CTA) and the provincial government have successfully negotiated a tentative settlement on central terms of a collective agreement with Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) education workers.

OPSBA statement regarding bargaining with CUPE

“It is extremely disappointing that we have not been able to reach a negotiated agreement at this time among CUPE, the Crown and the employer. As a result of the anticipated strike action, schools in many of our member boards will be forced to close to students for in-person instruction tomorrow, and for the duration of this strike action by CUPE members. Where schools are closed to in-person learning it is because they are unable to maintain the healthy and safe operation of schools for students without these critical education workers. We hope this disruption is short-lived and that we can get back to in-person learning as soon as possible.”

Honouring the second National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

September 30, 2022, marks the second National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. On this day, schools and school boards across Ontario, including students, staff, and school communities, will be commemorating the tragic history and ongoing legacy of residential schools, which more than 150,000 First Nations, Métis, and Inuit children were forced to attend between the 1870s and 1997.

Cathy Abraham remains President of OPSBA

President Abraham has served as OPSBA President since June 2018 and was acclaimed at the Association’s 2022 Annual General Meeting on Friday, June 10, in Ottawa.
