Welcome Members – You are the V.E.A. !
3/8: DISTRICT BUDGET DEBACLE: ATTEND THE MARCH 13 BOARD MEETING AT LANDIS AT 5:30 TO HEAR THE CUTS AND ADVOCATE FOR THE PROGRAMS, SERVICES AND PEOPLE THAT SHOULDN’T BE CUT.
Negotiations Update (2/28): We are excited to report that the Board and the VEA have reached a tentative agreement!
Thank you to all of our members who have supported and led our Action Team and participated at rallies today, on Wednesdays, and earlier. You helped make the difference. All details will be shared with the entire membership at one time at a General Membership meeting to be scheduled in the near future. However our fight for a fair school budget, educational quality for our students, work rights for support staff and Ch. 78 relief is not done!
Thank you to all those who rallied in red for ed. on 11/30.
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!
