Professional Difficulty

Anytime you are asked to a meeting with administration regarding your professional duties, you are always entitled to Federation representation. It is strongly recommended you make use of this right. You should speak with your Staff President or your CBC rep, to ask them to represent you in any meeting that could potentially involve discipline.

As well, you may request representation from the District 24 Teachers' Bargaining Unit release officers: Darryl Weber, Rob Gascho or Diane Kewley.

If you are in professional difficulty and you cannot reach District 24 staff, please call Provincial OSSTF office at 1-800-267-7867 and ask for the Duty Officer.

The Provincial OSSTF Duty Officers are available 24/7/365.
