Thomas Paine, First Principles of Government

Come help bring ATR issues to the plate for the next contract
Bring concerns, whether they be how the fair funding formula feeds into school closure, ageism, teacher displacement --displacement of veteran teachers by less experienced, lower paid staff (strikebreaking by another name).
In interim assignments, more often we are shunned as outsiders, and worse, sometimes bullied instead of being welcomed as new colleagues.
For things to change we need to come together and act.
