More than 50,000 Ontario school board workers have ratified a coordinated bargaining agreement that will see wage increases of 3 per cent per year for the next four years.

The agreement, ratified Nov. 30, covers 105 bargaining units and also includes gains in benefit plans, working hours and staffing.

“It’s a proud occasion and an important achievement said Terri Preston, Chair of the CUPE Ontario School Board Coordinating Committee (OSBCC).

Preston paid tribute to all the leaders of the locals, their servicing staff and area reps on the OSBCC, as well as with the special “flying squad” of PDT specialists who pulled out all stops to complete the bargaining process.
