The drumbeat of assaults on unions and public education remains as loud as ever, in Vermont as well as across the nation. But educators aren’t standing still – they are standing up. In deep-red states like West Virginia, Oklahoma, Arizona, and Kentucky, educators have walked off the job and descended upon state capitals to protest low wages and years of public school neglect. In Vermont, we know all too well that the governor wants to eliminate 4,000 education jobs, slash programs for students, and weaken the investment Vermonters make in their public schools. That is why it's especially important for all of us to Power UP! You have the power to lead your union. You have the power to lead your profession. And, most importantly, you have the power to shape the future.
Come join us for 3 days in beautiful Burlington, Vermont overlooking Lake Champlain. This is a terrific opportunity to learn, to network, and to socialize with other union educators. We’re especially excited to have Labor Notes leading an entire day of training so you do not want to miss this amazing and FREE opportunity!
