Members, as we return to school in these uncertain times, here is a section from the California Ed Code that will help us keep our kids safe:
Update on Implementation of New Contract
WTA Teachers Ratify Contract
Articles with New Language:
Articles still awaiting final edit: Article 5, Article 11, plus updated salary schedules.
Please visit CTA Member Benefits to ensure you are getting the most out of your membership in WTA. We are hoping that there will be an open enrollment period for disability insurance through The Standard later this year. We'll keep you posted.
The Weingarten Rule
Do not talk with an administrator if you believe the conversation will be about your employment rights.
Say: "If this discussion could in any way lead to my being disciplined or terminated, or affect my personal working conditions, I respectively request that my Association representative be present at the meeting. Without representation, I choose not to answer any questions."
I will not criticize any union colleague except to that individual directly.
If any union colleague is being criticized in my presence, I will confront the criticism and ask that it stop.
I will not participate in any conversations with management that criticize, or negatively speculate about any union colleague.
I will settle my differences with colleagues within my union.
I will engage in debate, offer others every opportunity for debate and respect minority viewpoints, but I will observe and support the majority mandate of my union.
