The Halton District School Board and Ontario Public Service Employees Union have reached a tentative deal on a contract for adult language instructors.

Negotiations toward a new contract for adult English and French as a second language teachers in Burlington, Oakville, Milton, and Halton Hills took a big step on Thursday (June 13).

The Halton District School Board (HDSB) announced they have reached a tentative agreement with the Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU/SEFPO).

The tentative deal must be ratified by OPSEU/SEFPO members and the Halton school board.

“Terms of the tentative remain confidential until the ratification process is completed,” said the HDSB.

OPSEU/SEFPO represents language instruction for newcomers to Canada and instructors for adult English as a second language (ESL) and French as a second language (FSL).

The union represents approximately 180,000 full- and part-time workers across the province.
