Ontario education workers’ union ends strike as Ford rescinds bill imposing contract | FULL

The union representing 55,000 education workers in Ontario says it will be “collapsing protest sites” on Tuesday after Premier Doug Ford promised to rescind the controversial legislation against their ability to strike and if they returned to the bargaining table.

“We hope that this gesture is met with the same good faith by this government in a new proposal at the bargaining table as soon as possible,” said Laura Walton, president of CUPE’s Ontario School Board Council of Unions.

Walton said CUPE members “will be at school tomorrow morning.”

The Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) rejected a deal from the province on Oct. 30 and issued a 5-day strike notice as part of a legal requirement.

After a second school-day of strike, the Ford government agreed to rescind Bill 28. The union has agreed to Ford's offer and ended their strike, and both parties are expected to be back to negotiations.
