After months of unrest, which saw a labour board hearing and many strikes, Ontario’s teachers have inked tentative agreements with the provincial government.

Negotiations over the past few months managed to churn out five deals with the province’s elementary, secondary, Francophone and Catholic teachers’ unions.

But the new two-tiered bargaining system might have failed to make the grade. In fact, some classrooms could still see local job action happening as local issues continue to be hammered out.
