Peterborough Pride
OSSTF will be participating in Peterborough’s Pride parade and pride in the park on Saturday September 21st. It would be wonderful if you would join us! If you would like to march in the parade please meet at City Hall at 1:30 (look for the OSSTF flags). Following the parade we will be in the park handing out goodies! This is a great opportunity to also wear your Red For Ed shirts. 

Free Financial Workshop
In partnership with  the ETFO OT Bargaining Unit we will be hosting a free financial workshop called, “The Keys to Financial Wellness”. This workshop is being run by Educator’s Financial Group, which is an organization that only serves Education Workers in Ontario. Due to their specific clientele they understand our pay, pension, and our precarious work situation extremely well. Educator’s Financial Group was actually created because Educator’s found it difficult to get approved for mortgages. 

The workshop will be on October 23rd at the District Office, with a meal included starting at 4:30 and the workshop beginning at 5:00. If you would like to register please fill out this form.

New Website!
District 14 has a new website! One of the benefits is that this is a secure website, which will better protect all of our privacy. If you haven’t already done so please register on the website so you can gain full access to the member protected section.
