Helen Keller once said, “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”
As one of the biggest Unions in New Jersey we stand strong and we stand united together. Everyday we must create new opportunities for our members to learn and grow, how to advocate for their rights, and how to advocate for our fellow colleagues. We believe when we learn to do that on a personal level, it empowers us to stand together when necessary. Our strength as a union is in our people, and in standing together through thick and thin. Individually, each of us is strong but easily ignored. Together, we are a force to be reckoned with, a force for change, and a force for our profession. Our beliefs are that we deserve to work in an environment that fosters equality and excellence for all.
As your Union Officers we look forward to continuing advocacy for our profession and our members. In the coming year, our priorities to you are:
- Bargain wages, benefits, and contract language that encourages both the recruitment of outstanding employees and the retention of those employees.
- Promote the Union’s commitment to excellence in public education with high quality professional development, worksite leader identification and development, and ongoing local, state, and national advocacy for sound public education policy.
– Respectfully Your Union Executive Officers
