Occasional Teachers' Bargaining Unit

Occasional Teachers are a diverse group comprised of career Occasional Teachers, Short-Term and Long-Term Occasional Teachers and an ever increasing retired teacher population. For many Occasional teachers, this is a stage in their teaching careers, while for others, this is a way of life.

Regardless of the demographic make-up, these OSSTF members representing approximately 6,000 individuals have issues and concerns that are often unique to their circumstance. Locally, the roster for this group of OSSTF teaching professionals averages more than 750 Occasional Teachers.

Local services and representation for this group of OSSTF Occasional Teachers are provided by an elected Bargaining Unit executive of their peers. The areas of service include but are not limited to collective bargaining, contract maintenance, communications, and professional development.

Kelly Granum, the Bargaining Unit President and Grievance Officer, can be contacted by  telephone at (613) 729-7211 ext 206 or by e-mail: kelly.granum@d25.osstf.ca
