Better Schools Stronger Communities

The Provincial Executive is inviting applications from Members to participate in the newly formed Organizing for Better Schools, Stronger Communities Work Group, as approved at the Annual Meeting of the Provincial Assembly (AMPA) 2023 as part of the Strategic Action Plan 2023-2024 ‘Organizing for Better Schools, Stronger Communities’.

OSSTF/FEESO is looking to fill one (1) vacancy on the Organization for Better Schools Stronger Communities Ad Hoc Work Group, which is made up of experienced community activists with expertise to help us strengthen our relationships and outreach to communities across the province. This work group advises the Provincial Executive and assists with planning the OSSTF/FEESO Organizing Institute.

The work group will continue to research best practices for community organizing and assist in developing the resources, training, and materials for the Organizing Institute.
Our priority will be to build a discourse on what it means to foster and build trust with various community groups at the provincial and local levels.

Ideal candidates for this work group will have a wealth of experience in community organizing and demonstrated ability to engage members in leading to community action. All members of OSSTF/FEESO are welcome to apply. We actively seek and welcome applications from members of First Nations, Métis, Inuit and equity-seeking groups. Self-identification is voluntary. If you choose to self-identify, please complete the OSSTF/FEESO Voluntary Self-Identification Form.

The work group will meet up to six (6) times throughout the year and applicants must be able to secure release time from their employer to attend. Applicants must also be available to travel for meetings and training, both locally and internationally, depending on the need. Applicants should confirm their ability to secure release time through their Bargaining Unit President.

If you have any questions, please email Munib.Sajjad@osstf.ca, Community Organizer for OSSTF/FEESO.

The application deadline is no later than Friday, December 8, 2023, at 4:00 p.m. Please submit your applications to Munib.Sajjad@osstf.ca.
