On February 17th the WRDSB posted the following message on their waterworks system:
The 2014 T4’s can be located by logging into: http://staff.wrdsb.ca
Click once on the Self Service Portal option. Next, log in using your PAL username and password. Then select T4 and T4A. Click on the letters T4 beside the year 2014. Once the document opens, you can print the T4.
Only electronic copies will be provided unless employees make a request for a printed copy. Requests for printed copies of 2014 T4’s must be sent via Waterworks to “T4 Request”.
Those staff members currently on a full leave of absence, and staff that have retired or resigned from the Board, will receive a printed copy of their 2014 T4 at the current employee address on record, via Canada Post.
T4A’s, will be printed and mailed as required.
In the event you are unable to access the Self Service portal, please log a help desk ticket with the Board’s IT Department at: http://ithelpdesk.wrdsb.ca/
Currently the Subfinder system allows members to opt out of calls from specific schools. This not only benefits our members but it also saves time in allowing the system to make intelligent calls and only contact employees that are willing to work at that site.
In order to better serve both the board and the Occasional Teachers there has been some discussion as to allowing Occasional Teachers the ability to opt out of Subfinder calls for specific qualifications or divisions. Similar to the ability to limit school sites, this would allow the system the ability to only contact employees that are willing to work in that division or subject.
I’ve invited you to fill out the Subfinder System Poll there is only one question: Link here
The Membership Development Fund (MDF) is online and live! No more having to print out forms and send them in.
- $150 per member is available for professional development activities.
- All OTs with at least one year of membership are eligible.
- The is also a book subsidy available to members.
Simply head on over to www.etfowrotl.com and follow the link.
The board requests that Occasional Teachers remember to book themselves out of the Subfinder system if they are in a LTO or are unavailable for work. There is no penalty for booking yourself unavailable and it will stop the system from wasting time calling unavailable OTs. This process is considerably easier with the online component.
A reminder to Occasional Teachers to utilize the Fail to Fill line in the mornings that they don’t have a pre-booked assignment.
More information about the fail-to-fill process please can be found here: https://etfowrotl.com/Subfinder/
I encourage all OTs to try the fail-to-fill line if you want to ensure a steady amount of work.
