CUPE to end Ontario education worker protests after Ford promises legislation repeal

The Canadian Union of Public Employees says more than 50,000 Ontario education workers will end protests that closed hundreds of schools after Premier Doug Ford promised to repeal a controversial law. Days after the premier said he had "no choice" but to enact a law that imposed a contract on the workers, Ford said he would repeal that legislation if CUPE showed "a similar gesture of good faith."
