How many days must I work to remain on the OT Roster?

20 full days (2 half days = 1 full day) STO (daily work) and LTO days count.

This is a number assigned to you by ETFO Provincial to track your membership information. It can be found on your ETFO membership card (the one with the apple on it!). Can’t find it –call 1-888- 838-3836 and ask for member services.
