This afternoon, 300 members of the BEA and community allies participated in an informational picket. Participants continued to ask the Burlington Board of School Commissioners to come back to the table and bargain with our community’s teachers. Participants called for a fair contract for all of the district’s teachers and for a transparent budget that details the Board’s allocation of money.
We have more informational pickets coming up over the next few days. One will be Wednesday morning, September 28th, from 7:15-7:45 am at each of our schools and another will be in front of the Edmunds campus on Main Street from 4:00-4:30 on Thursday, September 29th.
