Win or lose, our RESPECT campaign has made Social Equality Educators stronger and by extension our union. We reached out to buildings and teachers all over the city with the message of social movement unionism and the vision of what a member-driven union could aspire to. Educators shared many stories that prove the difficulties of teaching are mounting and that indeed corporate education deform has infiltrated class rooms all over Seattle. Moreover, educators have disproven the notion that they are apathetic about the policy decisions impacting our profession and our children. People want to do something to stop the attacks on public education! No matter the results, we will continue fighting for RESPECT after this campaign ends to defend the contract we deserve, the schools our children deserve and the city our families deserve.
Let’s come together Friday, May 9th as the votes are counted. Together we mourn our losses, celebrate our victories, and move forward to the next struggle!
