Tentative Local Agreement

On behalf of the ETT Chief Negotiator, Michelle Leonard, and the ETT Negotiations Team, I am delighted to report that we have negotiated a tentative Collective Agreement with the Toronto District School Board (TDSB).

Thank you to the ETT Negotiations Team:
Chief Negotiator Michelle Leonard, Felicia Samuel, Helen Victoros, and Sonia Ellis Seguin (on leave).

Thanks for the support of the ETT Strike Team:
Strike Team Coordinator Andy Lomnicki, Doris Duni, Yolanda B’Dacy, Jennifer Brown, Kwabena Frimpong, Anna Jessup, Joy Lachica, Terri Lynn Platt, Colin Strange, and Jamie Thom.

I would like to thank ETT office staff for their assistance during this time. Special thanks also goes out to Kathleen Loftus, our ETFO Collective Bargaining Liaison, for her expertise and support.

Finally, I would like to thank all the members who have shown patience and encouragement during this long and difficult process.

We expect that highlights of the settlement will be communicated tomorrow (Thursday, December 16). After the holiday break, extensive details of the agreement will be communicated, and member meetings will be held to discuss and clarify the tentative agreement. The process for ratification will also be explained at this time.

Once again, thank you all – your encouragement has strengthened our union.

John Smith
ETT President
