The province has reached a tentative deal with the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario. Details won’t be released until the agreement is ratified. The union represents over 70,000 public elementary teachers across the province, including those in the DSB Ontario North East.

No deal has been reached with educational support workers represented by the Ontario secondary school teachers Federation. Trustees have been authorized to dock paychecks up to ten per cent.
