The Baltimore Teachers Union is proud to introduce a new quarterly newsletter aimed at furthering our union’s democracy and deepening our fight for educational justice in Baltimore. I look forward to members submitting ideas or articles for future issues of this newsletter.
Since the start of the school year, over a thousand BTU educators have participated in an action at a School Board meeting, attended a BTU event, or lobbied a lawmaker to benefit our students. This work has had a lasting impact on our schools, and our strength will continue to grow as more and more members unite to struggle for change. Victories happen when communities come together to fight for equity for our students, fairness in our contracts, and dignity in the workplace.
Our union is only as strong as our members’ participation. Ask your Building Reps for the latest updates, contact your Field Reps when you need support, attend BTU committee meetings to drive our work, and show up to actions when we need to make our voices heard. Together, we are a force for change when confronting the challenges facing our city. When we fight, we win!
