OCSTA, OECTA and the Government Reach a Tentative Agreement

TORONTO, Aug. 25, 2015 /CNW/ - "I am pleased to report that the Ontario Catholic School Trustees' Association (OCSTA), the Ontario English Catholic Teachers' Association and the provincial government have together successfully negotiated a tentative agreement on central terms of a collective agreement for both elementary and secondary teachers in Ontario's Catholic schools," said Kathy Burtnik, President of OCSTA.

The OCSTA president further added that "working within the fiscal restraints of the current bargaining framework was challenging, but surmountable with the concerted efforts of all parties."

The details of the agreement remain confidential until ratified by all parties.

Negotiations continue with the unions representing the various education workers employed in Catholic schools and school board offices.

The Ontario Catholic School Trustees' Association is the provincial voice for Catholic education. Founded in 1930, OCSTA represents all English Catholic school boards and collectively educates 545,000 students in Ontario, from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12.
