Mississauga, ON – The Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario Peel Teachers’ Local has reached a tentative agreement with the Peel District School Board.

“We are very pleased to announce that a tentative deal was reached between our bargaining team and the school board,” said Peel Elementary Teachers’ Local President Steve Dénommée. “The agreement was arrived at after ten days at the bargaining table.”

No details of the tentative deal are being made public until it is voted on by teachers.

A central agreement at the provincial level was reached in early November.

 “The new two-tiered bargaining process was exceptionally lengthy which meant that it took longer for us to arrive at a local tentative agreement,” added Steve Dénommée. “We believe this agreement is fair and meets the needs of our members.”
