Improvements in daily rates

Two years after having signed takeover agreements with its locals, ETFO achieves major gains for occasional teachers through determined collective bargaining. Gains include teaching from the same timetable as the teacher being replaced and significant improvement in daily rates.

Occasional teachers realize their goals, but the Near North Occasional Teacher Local has to stage a three-week strike before they achieve parity with their secondary school colleagues, making them the highest-paid elementary occasional teachers in the province.
