1) Lafayette Street School - The NTU has followed through in suing the administrative staff at Lafayette School personally. NPS administrators can not be allowed to use Teach NJ and Achieve NJ as weapons to destroy the careers of hard-working decent professionals.
2) December Membership Meetings – We are working on scheduling regional membership meetings before the Winter Break. More information to come as soon as the dates and locations are finalized.
Thanks to our colleagues at AFTNJ for sending this information over to us!
After Superstorm Sandy devastated our state three years ago, AFT and AFTNJ worked to identify members who had been impacted and assist in recovery. We supported the efforts of local food banks and provided information and referrals to the organizations providing direct assistance to families impacted by the storm.
