RED FOR ED


As educators, ETFO members are working through one of the most challenging times in our history! 


ETFO, along with other frontline education workers, have been fighting hard to ensure safe working and learning conditions during this pandemic and to demand fairness and justice for all workers.


Show your solidarity with others when you wear RED FOR ED each and every Friday!


Take pictures of yourself and colleagues wearing red and share them on social media using the hashtag #RedforEd.
