Trillium Lakelands Occasional Teachers’ Local
We are one of 31 Occasional Teacher locals of the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (E.T.F.O.) which represents over 83,000 teachers, and education workers in Ontario. Occasional Teachers replace classroom teachers on a daily or long term basis whenever a teacher is absent.
Trillium Lakelands Occasional Teachers’ Local (TLOTL) represents approximately 350 qualified Occasional Teachers in The City of Kawartha Lakes, Haliburton and Muskoka regions. The Local protects the rights of our members, negotiates and upholds collective agreements, and serves as a vital link to ETFO.
