This agreement is part of the collective agreement below. Local services and representation of this group of OSSTF casual teachers are provided by an elected executive bargaining unit of their colleagues. Services include collective bargaining, contract maintenance, communication and professional development. Casual teachers are a diverse group of casual teachers, short- and long-term casual teachers, and an ever-growing population of retired teachers. For many casual teachers, this is a step in their teaching career, while for others it is a way of life. The Professional Development Fund for OTs and LTOs allocates up to $300 every two years to reimburse teachers for improving their professional practice. The fund can be used for most professional improvement efforts, with the exception of AQs/ABQs. Some examples were first aid recertification for a Phys Ed teacher and an education conference in Toronto. Original receipts must be provided for access to this fund.
