Here is the link for EI
Each person’s situation is a bit different so you will have to work through the process on your own and call Service Canada if you have any questions.
Below is some more information provided to teachers in regards to EI. Remember as you read this it is for all teachers and is not written specifically to occasional teachers.
Ontario hiring regulations refer to the requirement of an evaluation when in an LTO.
Prior to regulation 274 there was no official evaluation process for those in LTOs. This has forced the ministry to provide a framework that could then be adjusted by mutual agreement with the local union and the board.
These documents can be found below. The first refers to the process and the second is the actual evaluation form.
WRDSB LTO Evaluation Video
The WRDSB announced they are holding an information session, open to all Occasional Teachers, in regards to the new LTO Evaluation process. I had strongly encouraged the board to hold this session on Friday, December 20th, in conjunction with professional development. However, it was decided to have the sessions after school on Tuesday, December 17th and Wednesday, December 18th.
In order to get a rough estimate as to number of attendees. I ask that everyone answer this one question survey to help determine which date works best for them. If you do not wish to attend, please indicate that in the survey.
There has been some confusion over the timeline for the $150 OCT dues. Payment for the dues must be paid to the OCT by April 15th, 2014.
- Those in LTOs will have their fees deducted from their January 24th pay.
- Daily OTs are responsible to make the payment themselves.
If you are unhappy about the increase in OCT dues, please direct your e-mails to firstname.lastname@example.org
