Advisory: Filling Teacher Absences
ETT has received reports that some TDSB administrators are not attempting to fill teacher absences with qualified occasional teachers. Members are reminded that this practice constitutes a breach of the following collective agreement clause:
L – D.13.5. The Board shall endeavour to provide a qualified Occasional Teacher in the event of a Teacher absence.
ETT members are encouraged to report any evidence of a breach of L – D.13.5 to the ETT Executive Officer for their school, so that redress may be pursued via the grievance-arbitration process.
