LINDSAY, ON – Late in the evening on January 25, 2016 a tentative agreement was reached with the Professional Student Services Personnel (PSSP) bargaining unit and Trillium Lakelands District School Board.  This bargaining unit includes student services workers, psycho-educational consultants, and speech-language pathologists.

The PSSP group is part of the Ontario Secondary School Teachers Federation (OSSTF) District 15 for TLDSB.

“We are very pleased to have a tentative agreement with this group,” stated Board Chair Louise Clodd, “Our professional student services personnel provide important supports for our students including counseling services, attendance monitoring, as well as a variety of assessments to determine how to help our students with special needs.”

Both OSSTF District 15 PSSP bargaining unit and TLDSB are making plans for ratification of the agreement over the coming weeks.
