Their local collective agreement is full of rights, rights and protection from arbitrary treatment. Members of the Ontario Elementary Teachers` Federation (ETFO) voted in favour of centralized collective agreements with the Ontario government, the Ontario Public Schools Association and the Board of Trustee Associations: in short, collective bargaining protects your rights as a teaching worker. Read your collective agreement again today. ETFO residents will now work with their respective school boards to negotiate local collective agreements. It is in the interest of each ETFO member to read and understand the agreement and to support the local negotiation process. It is significant that a new language was negotiated under section L5.16 Teacher Performance Appraisal to include a TLDSB/OSSTF District 15 New and Experienced Teacher Performance Appraisal Process. This document is now an integral part of the collective agreement. These are only a few points that would be threatened in the absence of collective bargaining: in the spring of 2017, a two-year renewal agreement was ratified by the central parties and, in accordance with the OSSTF Constitution, ratification of accession was necessary. The ratification vote was successful in approrogating the extension agreement and thus changing the central conditions for the 2017-2019 school years. The renewal agreement included the Employee Life and Health Trust (ELHT). OSSTF ELHT is called OSSTFBenefits. OsSTFBenefits Trust newsletters and information can only be accessed on the OSSTF province website for members.

Under the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA), the rules are too numerous to list. In this case, it would be beneficial to review the law and become aware of your rights and obligations of the OHSA.

In each act, there are regulations that specify or express in more detail the legislation under which they were adopted.
