Dear fellow members of the Washington Teachers' Union,
The measure now goes to Mayor Bowser. She has assured us she will sign it very soon.
The contract is effective as of October 1.
As you know, the contract mandates that all members who worked during the 2016-2017 semester will receive a payment equivalent to a 4 percent raise for that period and that in addition there will be a 3 percent increase for the 2017-2018 semester and a 2 percent raise the following year. Furthermore, the contract includes a $6 an hour increase for administrative time and other improvements.
Once again, congratulations on winning a contract that signals the first steps towards a truly equal and collaborative partnership with DCPS.
If we continue to build for power and broaden the unity we now have, we will have a clear, effective voice in educational programs and policies established by DCPS and the city.
Elizabeth A. Davis
President, Washington Teachers' Union
Every Christmas there are children throughout the DC area who do not receive gifts because their families are struggling financially and cannot afford the expense.
The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program has been running for over 35 years to ensure that these children have a wonderful holiday season with their families.
Angel Tree is a personalized holiday assistance program in which an individual sponsor or group sponsor purchases new clothing and toys for a deserving child (or “Angel”) in need.
In 2016, The Salvation Army, with the help of numerous generous sponsors, provided holiday gifts to over 14,000 children in the National Capital Area. For many of our registered kids, the gifts they receive through the Angel Tree Program will be the only ones they open on Christmas morning!SIGN UP FOR ANGEL TREE HERE
