Rainbow Board and OSSTF secondary teachers reach tentative local agreement

Rainbow District School Board and the Federation representing more than 350 permanent secondary teachers in Sudbury, Espanola and Manitoulin Island have reached a tentative agreement at the local level.

Details of the agreement will be presented to members of the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF) District 3 and Rainbow District School Board Trustees for ratification.

If ratified, the new deal will be in effect from September 1, 2022 to August 31, 2026, aligning with the provincial settlement at the central bargaining table.

“We commend the bargaining teams from the Board and the Federation for working together to achieve this tentative agreement at the local level, with students first and foremost,” said Rainbow District School Board Chair David Farrow. “Our teachers are role models who give students every opportunity to pursue their chosen pathways – be it independent living, work, college, university or apprenticeships – and achieve success.”

“On behalf of OSSTF District 3 Teacher Bargaining Unit (TBU) members, we would like to thank both negotiating teams for reaching this tentative agreement locally,” said TBU President Eric Laberge. “Both sides worked in partnership to reach this positive outcome. We look forward to presenting the local tentative agreement to our members for review and ratification.”
