We are GOING GREEN!
As individuals, we can green our homes, schools and offices and have a huge impact. Some ways in which we (ESP BU) are trying to reduce our carbon footprint are:
*Post links, articles, Collective Agreement, Constitutional Bylaws, and Seniority List on the Website
*Send fewer copies of publications from OSSTF to members
*Encourage members to subscribe to receive emails and notifications
*Arrange BU Executive and District Meetings at our new and bigger District Office
*Encourage car pooling to meetings and gatherings.
T4A Tax Slips
The OSSTF Benefits plan provides Basic Life Insurance and AD&D (Accidental Death and Dismemberment) benefits based on 2 times annual earnings. The funding for these benefits is from the negotiated FTE funding for active members and there is no required member contribution. Therefore, the Life & AD&D premium is a taxable benefit and members will be receiving T4A tax slips from OTIP for these taxable benefits by the end of February. These taxable benefit amounts are calculated based on the cost of Life and AD&D premiums paid for the 2017 calendar year (January to December).
Prior to transition into the OSSTF ELHT, these amounts would have been reported to members on their T4 from their employer.
