The BITOC (Black, Indigenous, Teachers of Color) group will be meeting October 15th 4-5:30pm. The focus will be centering the needs & voices in a BITOC Space to provide a brave space for people to decompress, share resources, and empower each other in our work. BIToC aims to build authentic and lasting solidarity among Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC). We will focus on repairing Native erasure, dismantling white supremacy with anti-racist practices, and advancing racial justice and equity in our worksites and District.

This upcoming meeting is for BITOC. Please join via this link:  https://us04web.zoom.us/j/74615756808?pwd=S2g2dEQ3ZnJ0OHFRR3I2VmprNXAzdz09

Frequently Asked Questions: Freedom Foundation vs. WEA

 

  1. What is the Freedom Foundation?

 

    • According to information from its website, the Freedom Foundation is a non-profit political action group created 25 years ago in Washington State to oppose collective bargaining and union advocacy through the use of lawsuits and media campaigns. They have sued for the right to access union membership lists as part of their mission. They are funded by ultra-rightwing conservative donors like the Koch brothers and other industrialists who would like to privatize public education and take away your right to organize and advocate for better pay and working conditions.

CPEA 1st Quarter Update                                  October 27, 2017

 

Happy Fall greetings to all of you!  Here’s a quick update on some items of mutual interest and importance…

 

1)      Today marks the end of the first quarter of CPSD’s academic year.  That means it is report card time for secondary educators.  But due to new contract provisions, elementary folks who are now on a trimester grading routine still have a few weeks before that work is due (December 1).

 

2)      The new PLC routine is still causing some angst for many of you.  If you have reason to believe that your building’s expectations regarding PLCs are not consistent with the CPEA contract, report your concerns to one of your building union representatives or call CPEA President, Jim Schell at 253-582-1822, ext. 12.

 

3)      Class size and safety concerns are also of foremost concern to many of you.  Please continue to document and report your class size overages to building administration to determine remedies and/or compensation.  Educator safety is an important part of your contractual protection and a matter of administrative responsibility.  Please report any unresolved concerns promptly to CPEA.

 

4)      It’s time to flip the calendar to November and that means it is voting season.  Besides our state and local elections (November 7), CPEA also has an election process underway.  We will be selecting our delegates to the annual WEA and NEA conventions, filling vacant Executive Board positions, and voting on recommended changes to CPEA By-laws and Constitution.  Look for a link on your home email to vote from November 13th to 17th. Don’t miss out on these opportunities to express your opinion and exercise your franchise!

 

Yours in solidarity,

 

Jim Schell

CPEA Past-President
