Our strength at the ballot box as a united union is critical as we strive to improve the jobs and lives of our members while upgrading the quality of services they provide. And even more importantly, the people we elect at the local, state and national levels have a direct impact on your paycheck, your pension, and the resources available for you to do your job right. Why wouldn't we get involved?
Christie wants to replace three State Board of Education members with teacher hating scum as punishment for supporting our teaching certificates. If you're as sick of it as I am, call the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee TODAY and tell their aides to tell them to vote NO...here are their phone numbers. Bury them!
Brothers and Sisters:
Please call or email your legislators ASAP and throw your support behind Senate & Assembly bills S2372 & A3929 that establishes State School Aid Funding Fairness Commission. These bills would increase funding for Newark by $90M. Help us avoid future layoffs that will occur under Christie’s $6,900 per pupil state aid proposal. Find your legislator here http://www.njleg.state.nj.us/members/legsearch.asp and help us thwart the Governors ill-fated proposal.
