Rainbow Board and Educational Support Staff reach tentative agreement

Rainbow District School Board and the Federation representing the Educational Support Staff Unit in Sudbury, Espanola and Manitoulin Island have reached a tentative agreement at the local level.

This employee group is represented by the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF) District 3.

The Educational Support Staff Unit includes administrative assistance, clerical and library staff as well as information services personnel.

The new deal, if ratified, will be in effect from September 1, 2019 to August 31, 2022, aligning with the provincial settlements at the central bargaining table.

“We commend the bargaining teams from the Board and the Federation for working together to achieve this tentative agreement,” said Rainbow District School Board Chair Doreen Dewar.

She added: “Our support staff plays an important role through their individual and collective contributions in schools and at the central office. They perform a variety of functions that are integral to the smooth operation of schools and the overall delivery of education.”
