Teachers' Unit Benefits: 2017-2018
The Teachers’ Benefits Committee includes the Membership Services Officer, Kim Appel, and an elected representative from each OSSTF/FEESO branch in a high school or site. The committee chooses a chair annually and the chair is in charge of directing the committee meetings; the committee also chooses a member to sit on the joint OSSTF/OCDSB Benefits Review committee. The Benefits Committee meets five or six times a year.
The Teachers' Benefits Committee is responsible for reviewing, annually, the teachers’ LTD claims and financial experience, recommending the renewal of the LTD policy and premiums, and coordinating the LTD Flex Plan renewals for teachers in their schools every three years. The Benefits Committee discusses health and safety issues such as environmental sensitivities, and makes recommendations to the joint OSSTF/OCDSB Health and Safety committee for resolving issues. Information is shared on new legislation concerning medical leaves and health care programs. School representatives bring their school concerns to the meeting and the committee is involved in finding solutions. Certification updates are shared with the committee as are any changes proposed to the teachers’ pension plan.
