Aurora, ON – On Tuesday, November 3, 2015, the York Region District School Board ratified a three year
collective agreement for its secondary teachers. Members of the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’
Federation, District 16 (OSSTF D16) also ratified the agreement through a membership vote on
November 12, 2015.

“We value the strong and productive working relationships we have with all our employee groups, who
are at the foundation of student success,” said Board Chair Anna DeBartolo. “I applaud senior staff and
the negotiations teams; this agreement will ensure that we continue to improve student achievement and
well-being.”

“Our members are highly dedicated and skilled teachers who provide high quality instruction for all
students in secondary school,” said OSSTF D16 President Sandy Glassford. “This agreement represents
the best interests of staff and students.”

The agreement between the York Region District School Board and OSSTF D16 includes items
bargained locally. As part of the School Boards Collective Bargaining Act, the local agreement will be
combined with the centrally bargained terms of the provincial agreement.
