Rally to support NUEA- Monday 8/2

As you likely know, NUEA is still engaged in negotiations with the district.  As things are heating up and coming closer to strike action, they are taking steps to encourage the school board to settle the contract to avoid such actions.

One action that NUEA would love your help with is on Monday.  We will be rallying at NNHS and then walking to WJHS prior to the closed session of the board meeting.

As a show of solidarity with our fellow IEA-NEA members, we encourage any and all NUMA members to come out and show their support. This show of solidarity is the backbone of union organizing and one of the greatest tools we have when advocating for fair wages and upholding the rights of each and every one of us to work, live and thrive with dignity and fairness.

We really are all in this together. Please show your support in whatever way you can.
