"Because this time we actually could bargain, and both sides wanted to achieve a contract that met both our needs, bargaining was very productive and respectful," said CUPE Local 173 President Janice Rittinger.

"Our bargaining team was wonderful," added Rittinger. "They were there through thick and thin."

The tentative agreement also incorporates the provincial framework agreement approved by the K-12 Presidents Council in September. The current K-12 agreement expired on June 30, 2019. When ratified by CUPE locals and school district Boards of Trustees, the collective agreement will be in effect from July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2022.

Further details of the tentative agreement will not be available until after ratification by all parties. Ratification is expected to be completed by mid-September.
