Who To Contact When

Members are encouraged to contact the Peel Elementary Teachers’ Local (ETFO Peel) about various issues that arise during the course of their daily professional and personal lives.  Your School/Workplace Steward is a first source of contact and general information about your Union (ETFO Peel Local and ETFO Provincial). If your school/worksite does not have a Steward, contact your VP Liaison to learn more about the role and becoming the Steward or Alternate Steward for your location.

Any member can reach out to their VP Liaison about workplace health & safety issues, schedules, and timetabling (i.e., items discussed at the In-School Staffing Advisory Committee, ISSAC), inquiries about the collective agreement, or information about pregnancy, parental & adoption or other leaves, etc. See the Released and Non-released Executive Members below for specific school/worksites.

Contact our Receptionist Kim, at, to update your contact information and member record. Reach out to ETFO Provincial Membership Services to update your contact information or inquire about your ETFO member number (1-888-838-3836 x3806). 

Contact our Member Services Manager Anne, at, to inquire about long term disability (LTD), WSIB, and retirement options.
