One Nation March: Laid-off? Retrenched? Contract not renewed? Get on the bus!

Source: NYSUT Newswire

NYSUT will underwrite the costs associated with Saturday’s “One Nation” march in Washington, D.C. for any members laid-off, retrenched or whose contracts were not renewed this year.

If you were displaced from your job and want to attend the rally on the National Mall to support public education, access to affordable health care, jobs and a strong economy, please contact your Regional Office.

It’s vitally important that we — as educators, school-related professionals, health care workers, municipal employees, retirees and unionists —make our voices heard.

Supported by NYSUT and its national affiliates — the American Federation of Teachers and National Education Association — the goal of One Nation is to ensure everyone has the opportunity for a secure job, a safe home and a quality education.

We need you to speak up and speak out on the issues that matter most to our union, our professions, our students, our families and the communities where we live and work.
