OTTAWA, Sept. 16, 2015 /CNW/ - The Association des enseignantes et des enseignants franco-ontariens (AEFO) -- an association that represents about 10,000 French-language elementary and secondary teachers from both catholic and public school boards in Ontario -- is pleased to announce it has reached a tentative agreement with the government of Ontario and the school boards.
"AEFO believes the tentative agreement is the best possible deal for our 10 000 teachers as it takes into account the well-being of our members and ensures high quality education for Ontario's francophone youth," declared AEFO President, Carol Jolin.
The terms of the agreement remain confidential until AEFO members ratify the deal. The tentative agreement must be ratified by October 16. Reaching a tentative agreement means work-to-rule -- which was to begin September 18 -- is averted for the province's French-language schools.
AEFO has about 10,000 members and represents French-language elementary and secondary school teachers in Ontario, from both catholic and public school boards, and workers from other French-language establishments in Ontario.
