FYI - OECTA Haters on Twitter

An HCDSB NEWS investigation has uncovered the anonymous hater behind the Twitter account oectawatchdog, the hashtag #oectabulliedme, the blogspot oectawatchdog  and the Facebook page Oecta Watchdog. The Twitter account shows a cartoon character dressed like a hooker holding the scales of justice and the description of the author is in block letters and states "GOOD TEACHER FED UP WITH A BAD UNION". The author is believed to be former real estate agent and recently fired teacher Jodi Formosi, formerly of Notre Dame Catholic Secondary School and cousin to Richard Brock.

Many tweets are aimed at OECTA provincial and are inflammatory to say the least. Ironically a popular complaint is about union finances which is ironic since this former employee has personally run up the union's legal tab well over $100,000+ in the time she was employed at the HCDSB. Attacking your employer is one thing but attacking your union while its defending you lacks a certain logic. If your into hating your union then start an anonymous Twitter page and risk looking foolish if you get found out or better yet give your President a call, they are more than happy to answer any of your questions. I know, they did it for me hundreds of times, and I was sure glad they were there. Anyone who knows any union history at all would know they are responsible for this list - astonishing really.


As always the HCDSB NEWS invites your corrections, comments and criticisms and any replies received from people or institutions mentioned in any article will be published.

  1. As of this morning it looks like oectawatchdog has dropped the very first persons it was following - Jodi Formosi. It is however still following # 2 David Chiarelli and Richard Brock et alia

    1. Who am I? You'll find my name at the website Carquestions.ca and a bio as well if your interested. Besides being a retired union executive member I would be best known online for being an auto safety advocate and running the You tube Channel Carquestions. I haven't gone to any great lengths to hide my identity it is easily found its just that on the internet most people know me by the name Carquestions - you can call me Mark if you like.

  3. Maybe if Halton OECTA would have properly dealt with members' issues rather than defending union thugs, the legal bills would not be so high.

    1. I don't know of a single case in any OECTA union where they were "defending thugs" As a union rep and exec member myself the only time that term was ever used that I know of was by former trustee of the HCDSB Burlington Bob Van da Vrande after he he lost his re-election bid in spectacular fashion.

    1. I noticed by the way, you didn't pose this same question to your fellow hater at Oectawatchdog blog and their twitter account - what would be the reason for that David?

  5. Sure - You can call me Mr. Whinton. A bit hypocritical of you to demand things isn't it? You don't seem to demand anything close to approximating a fact from your anonymous group of OECTA haters.

    1. I always include my name and credentials on everything I write there Mark. Are you goi g to add yours too on the site, clearly for all to see?

      Anyway, you don't have to like or agree with my blog. I'm glad to see another around for free speech purposes. Good luck!

      David

    2. Your right about that David and I promise on my very next blog to clearly put my full name on it - I'll also promise to post everyone's comments unlike someone I know.

  6. I cannot believe the hypocrisy of Jodi Formosi. And let's not forget the many people she has attacked over the past 2 decades, without just cause. Calling her a teacher is insulting to the teaching profession and I, and many others, were delighted to hear that she was fired by the HCDSB. One has to wonder how someone, like Ms. Formosi, can live such a life, always attacking others, always causing undue grief for fellow workers and always thinking that she is better than everyone else. There has to be some serious issue here and I hope she gets help with it.

  7. Jodi's blog should be subtitled: "a bad teacher in a good union"
