There was a sea of blue union shirts at the Great Valley School District School Board meeting this evening. The shirts were worn by staff and teachers I am told.
I have to ask was that a polite message most easily translated as “We’re waiting for our new contract, get busy” ?
The head of the Great Valley School District teachers union (Great Valley Education Association) spoke briefly basically with a “friendly“ message that they are “frustrated“ that school has started and there’s no contract yet.
To me that’s a friendly threat to strike if they don’t get something soon.
I will admit it was nice to see teachers at the meeting as opposed to the usual crazy anti-maskers, book banners, etc.
