CUPE says latest deal for education workers restores 1500 jobs
Ontario's education minister says that reaching a deal with school workers that put a cap on wage increases is a "significant success" for the government.
But the union representing the workers says the agreement was also successful for them on several fronts.
Union president Laura Walton says while she would have liked to have achieved a higher wage increase the contract restores between 1,300 to 1,500 jobs.
She says while she wishes they got more in the salary department, they choose to take on sick leave and job security.
The agreement reached Sunday night averted a strike which would have closed many of the province's schools.
