Thanks for your ongoing leadership at your worksite. Please read carefully the following instructions, regarding the 2024 Staffing and Workload Survey.


  1. You and your Principal must agree upon a date between March 1, 2024 and May 30, 2024 for the contractually mandated Staffing and Workload Survey, which is to occur during a Staff Meeting at your worksite, as per clause L18.1 of our Collective AgreementPrincipals have been informed by the Board of their obligations to allow for this survey.
  2. When you have settled on the date, please forward that information to reception@osstftoronto.ca, by no later than 3:30PM on February 28, 2024.
  3. Please note that for Adult Day Schools, we are currently in the process of attempting to secure time for ADS Members to complete the survey and expect to have information about that shortly. When we have this information, it will be shared directly with ADS Branch Presidents.
  4. Please use the following information to ensure all Members complete the survey on the date of your school’s selected staff meeting.
    • It is recommended that, as Branch President, you complete the survey ahead of time so that you can be prepared to answer any questions that may arise during the completion time of the survey. You will be sent the link to the survey on February 20, 2024.
    • Please communicate directly to your Members the following information in advance of the survey completion date:
      • The date and time that you have agreed upon with your Principal for the survey to be completed for your school.
      • They must be registered users of the osstftoronto.ca website in order to access the survey. If they are not currently registered, they should do so in advance of the survey completion date. If Members require help to register, they should contact reception@osstftoronto.ca.
      • Members should have a copy of their timetable (indicating all periods’ assignments, and all course codes within those periods) to complete the survey, and a copy of their 2024 Seniority Verification Form.
    • On the day of the survey (and not before):
      • Send your Members the link to the survey, indicating to them that it must be completed during the allotted Staff meeting time.
      • Make yourself available during the designated 40 minutes of survey completion for your school so that you are able to support and assist Members.
