The Faces of Unionism

The Janus vs. AFMSCE Supreme Court decision is expected to be decided this June. EdMN President Specht suggests we show our solidarity by taking selfies with the word "Union", and posting them on our social media.

Here are some examples from this weekend's training

Your union colleague Kelly Neff went to work for you Monday championing better services and protection for our students speaking in favor of a DFL Gun Violence Protection bill.  She was part of a press conference organized by Senator Jason Isaacson and supported by our own EDMN.  Your WBLTA dues paid for her sub so she could testify.
Here is the link to Kelly's addition to the press conference.


Congratulations to our 2018 Teacher of the Year, Maggie Clark from Oneka Elementary!

Attacks on public education in America by extremists and culture-war peddling politicians have reached new heights (“lows” may be more apt), but they are not new. The difference today is that the attacks are intended not just to undermine public education but to destroy it.
