Labour Minister and Education Minister to speak to cultural media
Ontario’s Education Minister Stephen Lecce:
During the negotiation process, the Government tabled proposals with each of the teacher unions, which included substantive moves on lower than proposed but not lower than on the ground class sizes, support for students’ unique learning needs, full-day kindergarten, as well as reasonable proposals on merit-based hiring and compensation.
Today, the Government announced the most recent proposal put forward to all teacher unions, with a focus on getting a deal.
Ontario’s Labour Minister Monte McNaughton:
Over the next five years, one in five jobs will be in the skilled trades. Many of these jobs provide lucrative, stable careers —sometimes with six-figure salaries. Despite this, a stigma persists that these jobs are undesirable. We must change that. Minister of Labour, Training and Skills Development Monte McNaughton looks forward to speaking to assembled media about the importance of the skilled trades to the Peel Region. He will be available to take questions.
