NTU Updates

Dear Colleagues,

Welcome Back! 

1)      Contract Update:  We are proud to be starting this school year off with a newly ratified contract!   94% of the NTU members who came out to vote and the full Newark Board of Education approved this contract.  Our voting process is based on the percentage of members who vote, not on a majority of the membership.  Take a look at your town, state, and national elections.  Winning is determined by a majority of the actual voters, not the number of eligible residents.

1)      Teacher Appreciation Week

On behalf of the NTU, we would like to extend a heartfelt appreciation for your time and effort you put in each day, 185 days a year. Schools are busy places, and teachers are busy people, so it’s not surprising that sometimes we miss out on chances to stop and reflect upon the influence our teachers wield over the young people in their care.

 So, thank you to all the teachers out there in Newark
