LINDSAY, ON – Trillium Lakelands District School Board and the Trillium Lakelands Elementary Teachers Local (TLETL) and the Trillium Lakelands Elementary Occasional Teachers Local (TLEOTL) are pleased to announce that a local tentative agreement has been reached with elementary teachers and elementary occasional teachers.

A central agreement was reached between the provincial ETFO and the government on November 13, 2015. Under the new bargaining legislation, the School Boards’ Collective Bargaining Act, a local agreement must also be negotiated on local conditions.

The local tentative agreement covers all elementary teachers and all elementary occasional teachers in the board.

“Our elementary teachers and occasional teachers are key contributors to the success of our schools and school board and have a profound and long-lasting impact on student achievement and well-being,” stated TLDSB Chairperson, Louise Clodd, “We are very pleased with this outcome and offer congratulations to both sides who have worked collaboratively to come to a local agreement.”

Both TLETL, TLEOTL, and TLDSB are making plans for ratification of the agreement over the coming weeks.
