My Rights

In every school and workplace, unity in action protects our members and the students we serve.

Together, our union fights to win.

Transfers

The administrative transfer window begins Nov. 18, 2018. Teachers may transfer schools without the consent of their current principal between seventy-five and thirty calendar days before the end of the school year. PSRPs may transfer without approval at any time.

When We Fight, We Can Win

Parking had become a big problem for teachers and staff at Acero Clemente. However, by organizing, by being vocal and through persistence, the Union was able to secure a morale-boosting win.

Handle a Grievance

A grievance is any workplace problem you may have. If a situation exists that runs counter to the law or your contract, the Union can help you fix it.

My Contract

Your contract provides rights that generations of educators fought for and won. You need to know your rights to enforce them. Learn your contract. Study and discuss these rights with your coworkers. Together, Union members and staff can make our schools better places to teach and learn.
