In a news conference this morning, our union president confirmed we will strike a few days after we return from Winter Break. This, of course, will be very interesting

Here is the flyer with the basic idea of what we are striking for.

Our district (smaller than the posterís size) had bigger reserves and didnít want to give us pay raise which hasnít occurred in 8+ years. Instead what we got was 55 hours of extra work for extra pay that requires paperwork we are responsible for. So itís not a pay raise. Guess admins want a big reserve to ensure years of safety for their salaries?
Anyways, good luck!

I hope it is warm there because this is the hardest time of yr to strike here. ( You freeze your butt off.)
It looks like you guys have some really young people on staff though. Usually, they can handle the cold better than us old fogies.
I truly hope you get what you're asking for too. I'd love to see the day when teachers across the US walked out for better conditions.
It is a shame all of our unions can't join together. If teachers were in charge more, I think we could fix this messed up system.
