April is upon us and the Prince George’s County Educators’ Association needs your support. The third Bargaining for the Common Good negotiations session was held on March 20th, and PGCEA has presented proposals for six of their eight platform topics so far. You can find the proposals online at https://www.pgcea.org/negotiation-proposals/. In Bargaining for the Common Good, PGCEA is working to improve school conditions for educators AND students.
This year is the first time Contract Negotiations have been open to the public. We have seen an increasing number of educators coming out to hear the discussions, but we need parent and community participation to show that teachers are not in this alone. PGCEA also wants community feedback to ensure we are working in a direction that benefits all stakeholders.
Here is how you can help:
- Mark your calendar to attend Negotiations Sessions on April 10 & April 24, 4:30-7:30 PM at the PGCEA Center (8008 Marlboro Pike, Forestville). RSVP online so we know how many seats to set up!
- Let us know if you have an upcoming PTA/PTO or civic meeting where one of our Bargaining Team members can share information with your community. I am also happy to answer questions or meet to chat more about Bargaining for the Common Good.
- Share this information with your friends and neighbors!
I look forward to seeing you in April!
