Huron-Bruce MPP Lisa Thompson welcomed the news that a tentative agreement has been reached between the Crown, the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), and the school board trustee associations, that keeps students in class.
“We have said all along that we are dedicated to keeping students in their classrooms in a safe and positive learning environment,” Thompson said.
Government officials met with representatives of CUPE over the weekend to work out a deal.
“Parents can rest easy knowing that the Government worked tirelessly to ensure their children remain in the classroom, where they belong,” said Education Minister Stephen Lecce. “By negotiating in good faith, all parties have demonstrated that a tentative deal can be achieved.”
