Seattle Education Association news release, 8/13/19
Phyllis Campano, SEA President
Seattle educators ramp up actions in contract negotiations with district.
Members of the Seattle Education Association are planning several community actions in support of their contract negotiations with the Seattle School District.
The two sides have been negotiating since May, and SEA has an initial contract deadline of Aug. 21. SEA bargaining priorities include competitive compensation, racial equity, professional growth and supporting the whole child.
Here are planned actions:
• Aug. 14 (Wednesday), 5:30 am to 7:30 am, sign waving on I-5 Albro Place and Northgate overpasses. Look for an email sent yesterday for sign-ups.
• Aug. 21, 4 pm to 5:30 pm, rally at Seattle Public Schools central office (John Stanford Center)
• Aug. 27, 5 pm, Seattle Education Association general membership meeting at Benaroya Hall to either ratify a contract or vote on next steps. Registration begins at 3:30 pm. Members, watch for a reminder postcard with the info and an email with more details.
Seattle Education Association represents more than 6,100 teachers, office professionals, paraeducators and substitute educators.
