The three-year contracts between September 1, 2014 and August 31, 2017 are in accordance with the terms ratified by the central agreement between the OECD and the Ontario Catholic School Trust Association (OCSTA) and, as agreed by the Crown, according to a WCDSB press release. The Wellington Catholic District School Board (WCDSB) and the Ontario English Catholic Teachers` Association (OECTA) Wellington Unit have ratified new local collective agreements.
