Individual awards range from $500 to $16,000.

Hi all,

Our union siblings in the Hawthorne Teachers Federation (HTF) are in need of help. As of June 30th 2022, educators of the Essex Agricultural and Technical School in Danvers have been without a contract.

With teachers facing unfair working conditions with class loads much too large, their union has attempted to bring in the community for support. Approaching bargaining with a community based platform, they have been collecting input from all members of the school community: students, parents, and teachers. From this HTF has presented a platform to the management which would allow them to communicate with all of the stakeholders in the school district. Management was unhappy with this approach and is refusing to bargain with HFT unless they agree to a gag order preventing them from sharing information about their negotiations with the school community, including parents and students.

After many sessions demanding for smaller class sizes and to include the community in negotiations, they continue to be rejected by management. That is why the Hawthorne Teachers Federation is calling on the community and fellow union siblings to support them in a standout.

Next Tuesday, September 13th, at 5:00pm the standout will be held at 565 Maple Street, Danvers, MA 01937. If you have any questions or need a ride please reach out!

NOTE: if you can arrive closer to 4:30pm, they would appreciate it!
