Ontario’s public high school teachers will be getting more money, but taxpayers won’t be paying for it.
According to details in a tentative contract agreement reached between the Ontario Secodary School Teachers Federation and the province’s school boards, teachers will receive a lump sum payment of one percent for the new school year, a one percent raise next year, and an additional half-percent later.
In a union briefing to its members, it says the extra money for raises will come from savings found elsewhere in the aggreement, which still has to be ratified.
