Good morning. We are having a bit of a problem with the delivery of the eBulletin to subscribers with Gmail accounts, and despite our going back and forth with the appropriate people, there’s still no resolution. We may have to make a switch to a new provider, so please be aware that the “look” of these ebulletins may change a little in the near future. Regardless of their new look, you can expect a delivery into your inbox every Tuesday morning unless there’s a Monday holiday, in which case, they’ll be delivered on Wednesday morning.
The BTU president was charged in June with digging in deep into the election process and making recommendations. The report was delayed by membership vote in September, until after the AFT finished its investigation of the appeal. Read the president’s report, along with all supporting documents.
SAVE THE DATE: On Wednesday, February 3, AFT’s General Counsel David Strom is giving a presentation on the Friedrichs case at the BTU, at our invitation. The Friedrichs case, heard last week at the Supreme Court, threatens collective bargaining rights throughout the country and has wide-ranging ramifications for our schools. Read a report from the Economic Policy Institute. Attorney Strom’s presentation will begin promptly at 4:30. All members are invited, and refreshments will be served. For those interested in the ramifications of this case, this is a must-attend event.
