Our new AFT St. Louis, Local 420 Executive Board was sworn in on July 1, 2014
Hello, to my Sisters and Brothers in AFT Local 420:
My name is Shirley Robinson-Morant. I felt honored to have had the privilege to attend the July 10-14, 2014, AFT Conference, in Los Angeles, California, to represent us, the PSRP’s.
AFT convention delegates unanimously passed a special order of business—recommended by the executive council—to fight back against attacks on unions and teachers like Vergara v. California and Harris v. Quinn, and to fight forward to reclaim the promise of America.
AFT President Randi Weingarten kicked off the AFT national convention in Los Angeles by outlining a bold plan to both fight back and fight forward to reclaim the promise of America and create economic and educational opportunity for all.
While the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the importance of collective bargaining and unions to families and communities in its ruling in Harris v. Quinn, let's be clear that working people, who have aspired to the middle class and tried to make a better life for their families, have taken it on the chin for years, AFT President Randi Weingarten says.
Findings from the 2013 Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS) of middle school teachers present a stark contrast between how teachers in the United States are treated compared with the working conditions of their counterparts in top-performing countries.
