Welcome to the Occasional Teachers’ Website!
We are a union local of the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (E.T.F.O.) which represents over 76,000 teachers in Ontario. Occasional Teachers replace classroom teachers on a daily or long term basis whenever a teacher is absent.
The Local protects the rights of our members who teach for the Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board, negotiates and safeguards collective agreements, and provides professional development activities. Please visit the appropriate links for more information about our Local and our activities.
Providing an environment for members that is free from harassment at all Federation sponsored activities; Fostering the goodwill and trust necessary to protect the rights of all individuals within the organization; Neither tolerating nor condoning behavior that undermines the dignity or self-esteem of individuals or the integrity of relationships: and Promoting mutual respect, understanding, and co-operation as the basis of interaction among all members. Harassment and discrimination on the basis of a prohibited ground are violations of the Ontario Human Rights Code and are illegal. The Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario will not tolerate any form of harassment of discrimination, as defined by the Ontario Human Rights Code, at provincial or local Federation sponsored activities.
