The Ontario Elementary Teachers` Union has reached a preliminary agreement with the province. «ETFO is a democratic organisation and, ultimately, it is membership that will determine whether this interim agreement is acceptable,» Hammond added. «Local leaders will now focus on putting conventions in place in their respective school boards.» In a message sent to members of the Ontario Elementary Teachers Federation (ETFO), the union says local presidents and chief negotiators will check the terms of the deal at a telephone town hall on Wednesday. ETFO will not comment further to the media at this stage on the provisional central agreements. .
