Sisters and Brothers,
We want to update you on developments and initiatives which have taken place in the sector over the summer. As of today we only have three out of 111 bargaining units still working to complete their local bargaining.

Funding for Public Education
OSBCC committee members and alternates recently met for an update and planning session. Among other things, we reviewed some analysis done by our researcher, Paul O’Donnell, about where we are seeing cuts to the public education system.
Twenty-nine Ontario boards will see a cut in their school operation funding in the next year, with the Toronto District School Board cut by 6.4 million, and Hamilton Wentworth by 1.2 million. Grand Riviere and Lakehead boards are each looking at 10% cuts over two years.
