On behalf of the ETT Executive I would like to welcome everyone back from the summer break. Hopefully, everyone was able to get some rest and time to travel, or spend time with family and friends.
Schools are amazing places and we, as teachers, should be very proud of our work with students.
I am proud to announce, that starting in September, ETT member-organizers trained at our Summer Institute will begin the process of having face-to-face conversations with colleagues at schools.
These conversations are a first step towards building a movement for high member participation so that we can effect change within our schools and win what we and our students need in our next round of bargaining.
This is an exciting time for our union. Our member-driven organizing campaign, fully realized, will give us an unprecedented opportunity to promote our members’ rights and to fight for the strongest public education system possible.
Finally, I would like to wish everyone a fulfilling and exciting year and I encourage all teachers to become actively involved in our union. I look forward to meeting you at one of the events organized by ETT during the coming school year.
