Peel board ratifies collective agreement with elementary teachers



    TORONTO, April 23 /CNW/ - The Peel District School Board and ETFO - Peel
Elementary Teachers' Local, representing elementary school teachers, have
ratified a new collective agreement for the term of Sept. 1, 2009 to Aug. 31,
2012.
    Notes Janet McDougald, chair of the board, "We are delighted to have this
agreement ratified with our elementary teachers. The Peel District School
Board was the first public board to reach an agreement with elementary
teachers. That speaks volumes about the positive, collaborative and
student-focussed relationship we have with ETFO, and all of our unions and
federations. We have said from the beginning we were confident we could reach
fair, negotiated settlements, and we now have ratified agreements with all of
our negotiating groups. Our appreciation to the Peel board staff and the
representatives of our unions and federations who worked hard to reach these
settlements. Our students, staff and parents will benefit from these
agreements that support student success and provide stability in our schools
in the years ahead."

    The Peel board serves more than 153,000 students in kindergarten to grade
12. Operating 235 schools in the municipalities of Brampton, Caledon and
Mississauga, the Peel board is the largest employer in Peel. For more
