Ontario's doctors are giving their support to a tentative agreement between the Ontario Medical Association and the province that allows for future disputes to be resolved through binding arbitration.

The OMA says 65 per cent of doctors supported the framework agreement reached last month.

Binding arbitration had been a sticking point in the two sides trying striking a new contract.

OMA President Dr. Shawn Whatley says the agreement provides for a fair, independent process, and prevents the government from taking unilateral actions.
