Rally with teachers Monday

7:44 am

The Portland Association of Teachers is sponsoring a rally and march for teachers Monday, November 9 at 6 p.m., starting at the Rose Quarter Benton Surface Lot (between the Coliseum and North Broadway). After the rally, participants will march to school district headquarters, where PAT president Rebecca Levison will address the school board. Teachers at Portland Public Schools have gone nearly 500 days without a contract, and union negotiators report continuing district intransigence in bargaining talks.

    I think they should continue marching right on into the warehouse and take what supplies they need to do their jobs, too!

    Good one, Zarwen! I smell a strike…….recession or no recession….

    And another thing–the district wants to go for a levy to replace/repair buidings–sorely needed, as teachers and staff have described on this site. Of course, who do they come to when they need footsoldiers to canvass door-to-door, talk with neighbors, work and campaign for something beneficial to kids? TEACHERS! And golly, gee whiz, how many teachers are going to sign up for this ‘campaign corps’ after repeated cuts to pay, benefits, working conditions, and PURPOSEFUL AND NASTY contract stalling and lack of settlement? The PPS needs the backing of teachers (we are also taxpayers, duh), to get anything passed in the city these days. Good luck PPS—you are not endearing yourself to your workforce……not one little bit. FOOLISH!
