Go to www.utea.org and click on the "More" directly beneath "Under the Dome". Click on the "ACT NOW/BILLS TO WATCH" link and send a message to your legislator. It is an easy process and it takes just a few seconds of your busy time. Just remember to do it at home not at your school computer. Things are hitting the floor quickly and we need your support. Two of the latest bombs are the possibility of the Republican Caucus supporting taking away the 1.5% 401 K contribution that all employees get and the possibility of cutting all of your Quality Teaching days. This is benefits and salary. Again the Republican caucus is trying to balance the budget on the back of the public school employees and students. Contact your legislators now to tell them to use the Rainy Day Fund, do more bonding, raise revenues, and include the benefits of the Federal Stimulus money. Act now or we will lose big.
