The Durham District School Board has reached an agreement with its permanent secondary school teachers.
Trustees signed off on the agreement – which had previously been ratified by local union members – at a meeting Monday (Dec. 7) night.
“The valued relationship we have with our union and federation partners allow us to provide a quality public education to all students at the Durham District School Board. The ratification of this agreement with OSSTF, District 13 helps us continue to provide stability and reach our goals of supporting students during this unprecedented school year. We are thankful for the incredible work they are doing in the classroom and community,” said Carolyn Morton, North Durham trustee and chair of the board.
“The Teacher Bargaining Unit of District 13 OSSTF is pleased to have reached a collective agreement with the Durham District School Board. There were several items for discussion throughout the negotiation process and bargainers on both sides of the table worked well to determine areas where agreement could be reached. We look forward to this collective agreement serving as a guide to continue the positive working relationship between the Board and its Permanent Teachers,” added Shane Stagg, president of District 13 Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation.
