Negotiations almost began in June and details of the deal are confidential until ratification by both sides, likely in September. Renfrew County District Council (RCDSB) and the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario (ETFO), which represent the instructional support staff, have reached a preliminary agreement on the terms of the 2019-2022 collective agreement. Colleen Mackin, Local President of ETFO Renfrew County Education Personnel, believes this is a fair agreement that respects the needs of members. As of March 1, 2017, ETFO staff members, who currently have access to the Staff and Family Assistance Program, and their families will be able to call the brochure number day and night, 365 days a year. In the event of a crisis, you have immediate support. Please be assured that the program is absolutely confidential. CBSBN President Susan Humphries says the two sides have worked together to find the common goal of supporting students.
