Toronto Education Workers/Local 4400 is made up of approximately 17,000 Education Workers who primarily work for the TDSB (Toronto District School Board)

Within Toronto Education Workers/Local 4400 alone, there are over 500 job classifications and over 1,000 worksites across the province.

We believe in well-funded community-based education and resources for ALL ages!

The last year of the pandemic was anything but easy. Communities across the globe experienced a major shift as the world scrambled to stop the spread of COVID-19.

But while most of us stayed home to stop the spread and work, there were and are still people with important jobs who continue to work on site.

Schools, in particular, are an essential part of a community that rely on the work of hundreds of unsung heroes. Today, we celebrate ALL our Members who are dedicated to ensuring well-funded community-based education and resources for ALL ages! Education should be a right—not a fight. Throughout the pandemic, our Toronto Education Workers/Local 4400 Members have continued to be present for the community, all while navigating through health and safety concerns and pivoting to learning new technology to support their students and colleagues and taking money out of their own pockets to do so.

Toronto Education Workers/Local 4400 recognizes and would like to thank our Members for their heroism, compassion, continued dedication and the caring you have all shown during these ever-changing times.

You are the reason that TDSB (Toronto District School Board), Bloorview School Authority, NYAD (Not Your Average Daycare), MCCC (Maurice Cody Child Care), McMurrich Sprouts, Conseil scolaire Viamonde, and JIAS (Jewish Immigrant Aid Services) are recognized for the level of service they provide.

During these times, we have all been or know someone who has been affected by this virus.

We have not been untouched, our Members have contracted this virus, fallen ill, and some we have sadly lost. We mourn the loss of our fallen heroes and stand with those who continue to recuperate.

We cannot thank you enough, and we are here to support you. Please continue to stay safe and take care!
