Sfps Collective Bargaining Agreement
Through collective bargaining and representation of interests, both at the national and local levels, NEA members struggle for more than their economic security. They formulate requirements to improve student learning and the educational environment, such as smaller classes, less standardized tests, more break and art and music classes, and additional counselors. It`s an opportunity to naturally connect with allies instead of being isolated and attacked, which builds our power for good – for all of us. BCG is about expanding the continuum of negotiation, power building, and offensive to fight for social and racial justice – for our children, for our schools, for our communities we serve, and for the future. National and local member organizations across the country negotiate, organize and engage community partners and allies to formulate student-centered demands. This type of advocacy involves taking responsibility and implementing educator-led solutions that work for our students and their schools. Whether or not your union is considering participating in a public interest strategy, Student Centered Advocacy is a great way to increase the capacity and power to fight for the schools your students deserve! Student-centered representation focuses on strategies to improve student learning and improve the working conditions of educators. Local NEA branches across the country have looked at these types of strategies and tactics and gained contractual tongues on topics such as smaller class sizes, fewer tests, more staff of nurses and consultants, and community schools. . . .
