Wynne made 2nd million dollar payment with stolen money to pay off union masters

The Ontario government secretly paid $1-million to a second teachers’ union to buy labour peace, The Globe and Mail has learned. The province agreed to give the Ontario English Catholic Teachers’ Association the money to compensate it for the cost of collective bargaining as part of a labour deal reached in August.

The Globe previously reported a similar payment to the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation, which represents the province’s high school teachers.

Education Minister Liz Sandals acknowledged on Wednesday that the government has made several such payments over the past 10 years to seal deals with teachers’ unions.
