Our bargaining has defaulted back to a traditional process. Here is a bit of information that will assist you in understanding the process.
Your bargaining team has spent countless volunteer hours of their evening, weekend, and summer time to accomplish this herculean task on your behalf.
It is VITAL that each one of our members - aka, YOU - support them when called upon to engage in the public process if we are going to have a contract which attracts and retains the high quality educators that Anchorage students deserve!
Come to the School Board meeting this Monday, Sept. 25th, at 7pm, and #WEARPURPLE to show the District that you'd like a contract NOW!
AEA is committed to ensuring that our members are highly trained professionals!
We would like to extend an invitation to apply to attend selected professional development events. If chosen, attendees will receive world class training, network with NEA members from around the country, strengthen their leadership, and build capacity in our local.
For more information, or to apply:
Congratulations on getting your message to the School Board! A huge, "THANK YOU," to all of you who took time out of your busy evening to be present and support your colleagues who testified last Monday evening! (If you couldn't make it, don't worry, there will be more chances to participate:)
See the news coverage generated by your efforts! (Click on source name) This is the power of collective action in our Union!
Let's keep the momentum going! We will be following up at future School Board meetings, having an email campaign, and other efforts. Everyone will be receiving an AEA t-shirt after the 10/3 October Rep Council meeting. Watch for more info. Be ready!
