This rally will go ahead as planned, regardless of weather or Board cancellation! It’s time to let the community know what’s happening in their schools. Wear red.
Congratulations to Inez Acosta, our endorsed candidate, for her re-election to the Board of Education with the highest vote total!
Thank you to members for supporting her and our other endorsed candidate, Alix Silva, who narrowly missed election to the third seat.
Thank you to the 767 members who signed the health insurance petition and the 30 who showed up at the VEA office to make signs for mediation!
More information is posted on the members only Contract Information page (log in using your NJEA credentials) and a general membership meeting will be scheduled in the future. Your support is needed.
Cumberland County Family Shelter – We are collecting donations for delivery each month.
If you hear from individuals or groups trying to convince you to drop your membership or claiming to offer you cheaper representation, understand that they are fronts working for far-right, anti-union organizations funded by the Koch brothers. Their interest is to dilute the power of unions, lowering wages and ending collective bargaining for decent wages and benefits. The V.E.A. remains the only democratic membership organization that exists to represent you. Our power is our unity. Please read this (Click here) if you got the mailing from “Americans for Prosperity” to get the full context of who they are and what you received.
Have a great year and get involved – now is the time!
