Local Information

Your ETFO-Toronto Occasional Teachers’ Local represents all OCT certified occasional teachers who teach for the Toronto District School Board in the elementary panel. All daily and long-term occasional teacher members are covered by the collective agreement (contract) that can be found on this website.
Your Local holds at least three General Meetings each school year that are open for all members to attend. The organization is governed by a local Constitution that is approved by the membership at the Local’s Annual Meeting.  The organization’s office is located at 17 Fairmeadow Avenue, Suite 209 in Toronto which is just north of York Mills Rd between Bayview Avenue and Yonge St.

Your Local Executive is composed of 12 elected TDSB elementary occasional teachers as per the Constitution.  They meet on a regular basis to govern the affairs of the Local and to review and make local budgetary decisions. The Executive receives reports and updates from the local’s committees and goes over communication issues from and for the membership. There are a variety of committees that occasional teacher members can join in order to assist in local events and business and to strengthen their engagement and knowledge with their union local. The ETFO-Toronto Occasional Teachers’ Local also offers professional learning opportunities and a variety of events for members to participate in. Members are advised to check this site frequently for updates and information. Our members are also highly encouraged to visit the website of the provincial organization, the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO) at www.etfo.ca.
