Jul 14, 2022 The opening session of the 87th national convention of the American Federation of Teachers features AFT leaders from across the country, guest speakers such as Boston Mayor Michelle Wu and AFL-CIO Massachusetts President Steven Tolman, and the State of the Union address by AFT President Randi Weingarten.
In a Special Order of Business, Convention 2022 delegates unanimously adopted a new report and recommendations from the AFT Teacher and School Staff Shortage Task Force . The report, titled Here Today, Gone Tomorrow? What America Must Do to Attract and Retain the Educators and School Staff Our Students Need, embodies seven months of intensive work by the task force, which is made up of 25 leaders from AFT state and local affiliates across the country.
At CHSE - thank you to all the teachers and their families who came to support the two CTA contracts! The size of the audience, your letters, phone calls, and emails has had an impact! The finance committee approved our contracts and the council members present voiced their support of the contracts when they get to the council for a vote on the 25th! Solidarity!
