It is finally spring...how can you tell? It snowed two inches last night. With spring brings our Early Enrollment Program to sign up new members to the association. Representatives will coming around to our potential member friends and giving them the opportunity to sign up for membership in NEA/UEA/OEA/WEA. You can help by talking to your colleagues and letting them know the work we are doing for teachers.
OEA has 553 members (80% of licensed educators) and signed up 74 new members this year.
WEA has 1062 members (63% of licensed educators) and signed up 107 new members this year.
As you can see, we have some work to do. We can do so much more with the solidarity of strong membership. We are starting negotiations soon and we will be battling to preserve steps and lanes, class size, and fund insurance increases. We need everyone with us.
Thanks Again for reading. Rick
