4/14/21 – April Vital Link

Join us for virtual bargaining tonight at 4:30!

Join us for virtual bargaining. Tonight’s  JCEA proposals affect nearly every single educator in our district. If you can’t stay for the entire session, join us for the “10 with your team” live debrief and question and answer session with your bargaining team right after bargaining.

Virtual bargaining sessions and “10 with your team” are live-streamed in the JCEA #RedforEd Facebook group.

To view bargaining without Facebook use the district’s live stream:

April council recap

Our major focus last night was on the plan to win at the bargaining table this year. Your JCEA team and the management team are more than 50 million dollars apart (management is planning for a pay freeze and/or furlough days for educators) while we are hearing from our members that it’s time to fight for Jeffco to invest in their educators. You all have worked twice as hard as ever before and reinvented your practice to support students during a global health crisis.

Every Jeffco educator deserves to feel and be valued – NOW is the time to demand that the district invests in YOU. We have a plan to win this year – but it will take all of our members to get there. If everyone does a little – we can move mountains!

Your JCEA elected leaders, staff, and activists are here if you’d like to talk 1-1 through the plan and how our members can get involved – just reach out! jceacomms@gmail.com

April kicks off our in-person actions to support bargaining! Are you ready?

There are quite literally a hundred ways to support our bargaining goals this year – if you have five minutes or are ready to go all-in, there is a way to support the cause!

Sign up with the JCEA BOAT (Bargaining Organizing Action Team) and they are more than happy to help you find your place in our plan! bit.ly/JCEA_Barg_Action_Team
