Greater Essex ETFO Fall Dinner

Approximately 120 teachers and honorary life members attended this year's Fall Dinner. As part of the business portion of this meeting, we approved our local budget for this year and our local standing committees. Those who attended received a blue bargaining t-shirt in preparation for this round of bargaining.

Provincial President Sam Hammond was in attendance to share a provincial bargaining update and to answer questions from the membership.

On a local level, our executive worked on a local statement for this round of bargaining, one that would represent the voice of our members locally. After work and debate, we developed this statement: Greater Essex ETFO: Teachers Standing for Public Education. Further steps in how to contextualize and message this out are in the works. Thank you to our executive for this great work.

To those who attended, we hope you enjoyed our evening together. Thank you, as well, to those who brought socks, scarves, and gloves for the Downtown Mission. Special thanks to the social committee for their work in helping organize this event.
