ETFO takes action on violence in our schools

Our provincial union has heard from locals across the province that teachers are too often victims of violence and has started a multi-year campaign to address the issue. Boards need to comply with health and safety legislation and we need to improve the way teachers and schools report violent incidents. To do this ETFO plans to provide training and resources to members and there will be a public campaign to build community awareness about the terribly flawed way that funds are allocated to public education.

ETFO Limestone plans to have steward training in September, training for Health and Safety reps in early October and a more public campaign building over the year.
