The province will owe teachers, education workers over $100-million, if a deal to compensate them for the government violating their rights, is ratified.

The deal follows a court ruling last year that the government ”substantially interfered with meaningful collective bargaining” in 2012 legislation,which imposed contracts on teachers and education workers.

Several unions took the government to court over the legislation, known as Bill 115 that froze some of their wages and limited their ability to strike, and the judge sided with them, but left it to the government and unions to come up with a resolution.

The Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation was the first to get a agreement for about $50 million.

CUPE now says that if its members approve their deal, over $56-million would be paid out over time to potentially 60,000 workers, who were employed during the 2012-13 and 2013-14 school years.

About 27-hundred education workers, represented by the Ontario Public Service Employees Union, are set to receive $2.75-million.
