“As a mom, I don’t like this deal.As a worker, I don’t like this deal.As the president of the (bargaining unit) I understand what this deal is on the table.This was a safeguard that the Prairie provinces sought in 1981′s constitutional talks so that, in case of a dispute between elected governments and courts, the government could win as long as the people allowed it to.I think it falls short,” Walton said Sunday.However, she added, she had to do “the right thing as a leader” and take it to the members to vote.

Walton said “the entire central bargaining committee wishes we could have moved the government to make the investments in public education that you not only wanted, but that you needed and that your children deserve.Ford is the first Ontario premier to put the clause into legislation, and this was his third time doing it.That fight does not end with one setback.” Should support staff reject the deal, the union would have to give five days’ notice of any strike action.Lecce has previously said that grants to boards for this school year already provided funds for 1,800 additional support staff positions.But there is no precedent for a government suppressing labour rights in the way Bill 28 did.CUPE workers walked off the job for two days in protest over the Ford government’s Bill 28, which attempted to ban strikes and imposed a contract on them using the Charter’s “notwithstanding clause.

But at the end of the day, negotiating is always tough.I just think the casualty of our negotiations shouldn’t be our kids.” He said unlike the CUPE talks , details of negotiations with teachers — which are ongoing — will be confidential.“We’re going to respect the workers and our teachers, but we’re going to ensure kids are in school,” Lecce said.“We all have to really shoulder a great deal of responsibility, it’s on us as the adults in the room to keep these kids in school.
