The College Employer Council (CEC) and OPSEU/SEFPO CAAT-Full-Time Support Staff have reached a tentative agreement for a new three-year collective agreement, which is subject to ratification by their respective principals.
This tentative agreement recognizes the important work that Full-Time Support staff provide to colleges, students, and the Ontario post-secondary education system more generally. They are an integral part of the College sector, and colleges value the contributions they continue to make to the development of the higher education system.
Both parties worked hard and engaged in productive dialogue. The negotiations were characterized by respectful and open dialogue, compromise and cooperation. The deal is a fair and reasonable one. The College sector is stronger because of this ongoing positive working relationship.
Details of the tentative agreement will not be released until OPSEU/SEFPO’s Full-Time Support Staff members review and ratify it. The date of the ratification vote will be announced shortly.
In the meantime, the current collective agreement that expired on August 31, 2022, will continue to be in effect.
