We hope that you’re all staying safe and sound during this difficult time. If you have questions, concerns, or feedback about how Virtual School is going, please reach out to us at email@example.com. We will present a bargaining proposal around Virtual School if we start seeing common concerns that need to be addressed, so please email us or reach out to your site rep!
Our state union (CTA) is also curating resources here and has started a private Facebook group for educators to support each other during this public health emergency here.
Our first official contract negotiation session will be held via Zoom on Friday. In addition to contract proposals, we will be presenting this proposal related to the calendar and working hours for the 2020-21 school year. Your bargaining team is working hard to ensure that we are moving forward with contract negotiations; we won’t let school closures get in the way of our work toward increasing support services for students, improving teacher retention, and gaining a stronger decision-making voice for teachers! We will send an update about what happened during negotiations on Friday.
Bargaining Input Survey
We know everyone’s schedules have been thrown into disorder in the past few days, so we will be extending our survey deadline to next Friday, March 27. Please complete the survey at tinyurl.com/USMarchSurvey. We are collecting perspectives on our proposals around Employment Status, Discipline and Dismissal, and Job Duties / Workload. Thanks for taking a few minutes to give us your valuable thoughts!
