Our Mission

The Limestone Occasional Teacher Local of the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario is a professional federation advancing the cause of publicly funded education and fostering the professional well-being of its members.

ETFO priorities are: to protect the collective bargaining rights of all members; to defend publicly funded education; to serve the needs of the membership; to provide for the professional development of members; to promote social justice in the areas of anti-poverty, non-violence and equity; to support international assistance and co-operation.

The Limestone Occasional Teacher Local is comprised of approximately 275 elementary teachers employed by the Limestone District School Board. We educate students in 60 worksites. Our Local Executive, who are elected at the Annual Meeting held each spring, meets monthly to conduct the business of the Union.
