Welcome ETFO Bluewater Occasional Teacher Members!
Our union is represented by daily and/or long-term occasional teacher members with the Bluewater District School Board, located in Grey and Bruce Counties, Ontario, Canada. There is no physical Local OT office location or hours. We are remote!
We represent all members in a fair and equitable manner by securing through collective bargaining the best possible terms and conditions of employment to promote and protect the interests of all members of the Local and the students in their care.
This site contains our collective agreement, helpful documents, and FAQs to help support you in knowing your rights and obligations.
All current union news updates, reminders, collective bargaining surveys, invitations to local professional learning workshops and relevant announcements pertaining to your employment will be sent to you by the current Local President [email protected]. If you are not receiving these emails to your non-employer email address, please reach out asap!
All the best in your occasional teaching journey.
At the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario Bluewater Occasional Teacher's Local, we acknowledge and honour the customary and traditional lands of the Saugeen Ojibway Nation, including the Saugeen First Nation and Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation. We recognize the ongoing impact of colonialism on Indigenous peoples and commit to ongoing education and action in the spirit of Truth and Reconciliation.
