In the last legislative session, it was union members who worked to ensure high priority bills made it to the Governor’s desk and were signed like the Grow Your Own Teachers Act – creating a pathway and providing scholarships to educational assistants to become licensed teachers.
Thank you Representative Patricia Roybal Caballero!
In the last legislative session, it was union members who succeeded in equalizing the probationary time of classified educational employees to that of other public sector employees because employers should invest in and commit to workers who are invested in and committed to their jobs.
Classified public school employees (workers paid by the hour) and teachers who are employed by the Cuba Board of Education now have a new contract with the Board. The new contract is called The Negotiated Agreement. The contract can be viewed, downloaded and printed if you have an Adobe Reader program on your computer.
