PICKETING, “Walk-ins” AND SCHOOL COUNCIL MEETINGS
How often are ETFO members being asked to picket outside their school/worksite during the Phase 7 Strike Protocol?
I have scheduled supervision at the same time my colleagues have chosen to hold a picket. What do I do?
I am an ETFO DECE/ESP/PSP/education worker member. I operate on a different schedule than the teachers in my school/worksite. In some cases, I am the only ETFO member in the school/worksite. How does strike action around picketing affect me?
What communication methods can I use to invite parents to attend picketing or to organize a walk-in?
Can I give parents and community members details about ETFO’s Phase 7 Strike Protocols?
Can I send literature home with students asking parents to attend pickets or organize a walk-in?
Can I use the school’s social media and online accounts to ask parents to attend picketing or organize a walk-in?
Would attending a school council meeting violate WTR strike action around leaving the school/worksite no later than 15 minutes after the instructional day has ended?
How do I reach out to the school council and arrange to attend a meeting to discuss bargaining issues and cuts to education funding?
SENDING LETTERS OF SUPPORT
There are parents who want to help ETFO members reach a fair deal that protects student learning conditions and teacher working conditions, but it’s difficult for them to attend picketing. Is there anything else I can suggest they do?
I am a DECE member working with the Toronto Catholic District School Board and Durham Catholic District School Board. How do I contact the trustees in my board, and can I provide this information to parents?
