The Occasional Teachers' Branch is unique in that the Members are not situated in one site.

There are many Union Members working for you as an Occasional Teacher.

Your Teachers' Bargaining Unit President is Andrea Loken.  Andrea is a full time President and works out of the OSSTF Limestone District 27 District Office.  As President, Andrea is the spokesperson for the Bargaining Unit and is represents us with the Board and the Provincial Office.

The District Officer, Joan Jardin, also works at the District Office.  Please call Joan if you have issues related to the implementation of the Collective Agreement.

As of September 2018, the daily rate is $232.58.  This rate is 1/207 of the regular teachers' grid, Category 1, Step 0.  There is also a payment in lieu of benefits which has remained as $9.00.  (See Article 49 of the TBU Collective Agreement.)
