Dear BOE: Invest in Jeffco Educators.
Since bargaining began this year, we have heard consistently from our members that we must fight for compensation. Your team has worked hard at the bargaining table and will continue to, but the reality is, they need your support and action behind them.
The district’s team at the table only has so much power and influence over the decisions being made – ultimately, this falls to the five members elected to the board of education.
It’s time to send a respectful, but loud message to the board that Jeffco must invest in their educators.
Between now and the next bargaining session it’s time to outreach our board of education and build towards a JCEA day of action on September 3rd.
We have launched a petition to the board, which will be delivered at the September 3rd board meeting – it takes less than 30 seconds to sign and it’s easy to share. http://bit.ly/Invest_In_Jeffco_Educators
We are asking for your help to outreach every Jeffco educator, JCEA members and non-members to ask them sign our petition if they support this effort.
Our goal is to present the school board with a super majority of signatures from Jeffco educators on September 3rd and to have visible actions in the schools (and from home!).
We know that we can create a big impact and send a clear message on the 3rd if we all outreach our networks and make a personal ask for them to join us.
Sign the petition, spread the word!
Quick ways to grow our petition support:
– Text the petition to your colleagues and ask them to sign and share
– Email the petition to your colleagues and ask them to sign and share
– Help spread the word to your Jeffco colleagues on social media
– Call a quick virtual building meeting – ask everyone to sign and share
Start planning for September 3rd being a JCEA day of action
There are ton’s of ways to support the effort for fair compensation, either in person or virtually – whatever your comfort level is, there is a way for you to join us!
