As most of you are already aware, the NTA is calling off its planned rally for tomorrow.
Instead, we are taking a different action. We are asking you: Please DO NOT ATTEND the Superintendent’s “Staff Convocation and Rally for Educator Excellence.” Instead, please report to your regular buildings, classrooms, and offices, and continue preparing for the arrival of students on Tuesday, September 5.
We need a fair contract, and, in the future, we need to be invited to attend a convocation. An event that has always been voluntary is just that: voluntary. Please do not attend.
You may receive another email from Dr. Nolin that once again directs you to attend. If you do, we ask that you remain firm in your resolve. Please do not attend!
And don’t forget: Wear Blue!
Mike Zilles, President
Newton Teachers Association
