5225 W Vliet, Milwaukee Public Schools, 5-8 P.M. April 10, 2018
We just finished our meet and confer session with MPS Administration to find out if they got the message at Thursday night’s school board meeting. Hundreds of our members delivered over 3,000 time petitions and loudly demanded more from MPS administration. They aren’t listening!
Rather than listen to educator demands for “Time, Heath, and a Raise,” administration laid out the largest cuts to our healthcare and benefits since Act 10. They also gave a flat “NO” to educator demands for time to better service our students. This means it’s time for educators to take the next step in our plan to win for our students. This district is not broke. We know there are enough good school board members that will use the school district’s resources to help our students. We are resolved to show up and make sure these voices are heard.
On April 10th Administration will officially propose these draconian cuts to the school board. Our members MUST show up and speak out.
We need everyone to wear MTEA green all week, the week after Spring Break.
