Negotiators for the Northern Ontario School of Medicine and OPSEU Local 677 have reached a tentative contract settlement.
The bargaining team for Local 677, representing more than 150 office, administrative and technical staff, and negotiators for the employer have recommended the deal be approved. OPSEU members will conduct a ratification vote on Nov. 5. Details will not be available until both parties ratify the agreement.
Agreement came this morning following a day of marathon bargaining under the supervision of a provincially-appointed mediator.
