PUTTING THE U IN UNION
SCHOOL SUPPORT STAFF think about everything we do through the lens of whether it’s good for our students, schools, families and communities. We know that if we want to change things for the better, sometimes it takes more than keeping our heads down and doing our jobs. It takes union activism.
Luckily, paraprofessionals and school-related personnel, by the very nature of our work, know how to solve problems and engage with our communities. And luckily, such deep engagement can be fun and rewarding.
Here are four inspiring stories of PSRPs from AFT affiliates around the country—Oregon, Ohio, California and Illinois—who have demonstrated how you put the “u” in union.
