Rally on Wednesday, December 8th

Please show your support for the negotiating team by coming to the rally at Chelsea High School on Wednesday, December 8th. Join students, staff, and community members in asking for the Schools Chelsea Students Deserve!

Negotiations on Tuesday 10/5 – Button Up and Red for Ed!
Our negotiation team once again returns to the bargaining table this Tuesday. Please wear your “Schools Chelsea Students Deserve” shirt so that the district’s bargaining team knows that we are all standing behind our proposals for competitive pay, equitable preps, full librarians, translation with compensation, and smaller class sizes and caseloads.

Negotiations on Thursday 9/23 – Button Up and Red for Ed!
Our negotiation team goes back to the bargaining table on Thursday. We’ll be focusing on our paraprofessionals, and are hoping to see movement on a weekly prep period, compensation for translation, and a competitive pay scale. You can show your support for these demands by wearing your “Schools Chelsea Students Deserve” buttons and a red t-shirt! We’ve ordered shirts for everyone but due to supply chain issues they may not arrive by tomorrow, so please wear your own!

EBoard Elections and Website Update
We’ve elected many new members to our Executive Board, including our new VP Joanna Plotz, from the Berkowitz! Please take a look at the “CTU OFFICERS” tab to check and see updated members. We still need an additional rep for Berkowitz, Hooks, the ELC and the CVLA. The website will soon be a place to find information on a regular basis as we’ve also appointed a new Webmaster/Social Media Chair, Yamilis Cruz from Chelsea High School.
