Colleges and Support Staff Reach Tentative Agreement


TORONTO, September 18 – The College Employer Council representing Ontario’s 24 colleges announced today that a tentative agreement has been reached with Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU) representing college support staff to end the province-wide strike. Employees will be returning to work on Tuesday, September 20.

“We are very pleased that we reached a negotiated settlement. We look forward to welcoming all of our valued employees back to the colleges where we can again work together for the success of our students,” said Gerry Barker, Chair of the Colleges’ Bargaining Team.

A ratification vote conducted by the Ministry of Labour will be held in the near future, when terms of the agreement will be released.
