BTU Statement in Response to Teacher Sick Outs
The Baltimore Teachers Union is working to find a solution to the proposed cuts to teachers, paraprofessionals, and school-related support staff in Baltimore City Schools. Currently, we are having conversations with state officials in Annapolis, our City Council representatives, and the Mayors office to find creative ways to keep our teachers and support staff in the classroom so our children will continue to receive a quality education. This budget gap is a multifaceted issue that requires time and multiple partners to resolve, and the BTU is committed to seeing this process through to the end.
Any action that is perceived as a strike is illegal, and is neither condoned, nor supported, by the Baltimore Teachers Union. These actions negatively impact the classroom and put teachers and our students at risk.
