FAQ

What do I do if I am Injured at work?

Go to the office and fill out an EIR (Employee Incident Report). A minor injury could turn into something bigger and could end up being a WSIB claim. Be proactive and protect yourself!

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.

What is my ETFO ID and where do I find it?

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.

I have been assigned duty on the first morning of my STO assignment what do I do?

Go to the office administrator and have it re-assigned. Our Collective Agreement clearly states: An Occasional Teacher shall not be assigned any yard duty or bus duty prior to the commencement of class on the first morning of an assignment or prior to commencement of the afternoon class on the first day if it is a half-day afternoon assignment. It is understood that a comparable duty may be assigned by the Principal during the day.
