Strike Tuesday December 11th

We are engaging in a full withdrawal of services on Tuesday December 11th.  This is a legal strike and participation is mandatory.

Long Term Occasionals:
  • You will picket at the school where you're working your LTO.  Inform the Steward or Strike Captain (wearing red ETFO toque) to include you on their roster, and sign in with them for attendance.
  • Contact your school steward to determine which 3 hour picket shift you'll work.

Short Term Occasionals:
  • We are currently waiting on permits.  Once finalized, you will be notified of the sites where we'll be picketing.  Report to a Strike Captain (wearing a red ETFO toque) to register your attendance.
  • Plan to work a 3 hour picket shift starting at 11:30am.  Try to arrive 15 minutes early.

Notes for everyone:
  • You must contact your local office (905-892-0270) if you require accommodation and you must provide supporting documentation.
  • Fonthill office will be open from 4-6pm on Monday.
  • Your presence must be registered on-site for strike pay.
  • Strike pay is not taxable and is not counted as earnings for EI.
  • Photo ID required.

Post Picket:
  • All Occasional Teachers should plan on attending Amici’s (Merrittville Hwy & Beaverdams Rd) from 3-5pm.  Food and drink will be provided.
