A tentative deal has been reached for full-time support staff at Ontario’s colleges, including Confederation College.

It’s a three-year deal for workers represented by the Ontario Public Service Employees Union.

Details aren’t being released pending the outcome of a ratification vote.

Wages, benefits, working conditions and job security were some of the issues brought to the bargaining table.

The workers’ previous deal expired on Wednesday.

“This tentative agreement ensures students remain a top priority and guarantees no disruption to the start of their semester,” said Management Bargaining Chair Pascal Bessette in a release. “We value our ongoing employer/employee relationship, and this agreement is a testament to how working together benefits the College system as a whole.”

Colleges are set to reopen next week.
