Member Update 11-30-22

Dear members:

As we head into December, I want to remind you of a few events coming in December.
December 9th from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at the YMCA Wrap Gifts event. BTA invites you to donate gifts for the youth in the foster care system. There is more information and a link to a wish list in the November 2022 Benchmark.

December 15th WEAR your BTA t-shirt in support of Negotiations on December 16th. See your site rep if you do not have a BTA t-shirt. Remember to look out for the next News From The Table for a negotiations update.

SAVE THE DATE of January 19th for our 2023 State of the Union all member meeting.

Also on December 6th at 4:00 p.m. there is a special virtual Town Hall specifically for new hires. It’s a great opportunity for anyone new to our district (brand new or district transfers) to learn about their limited-time opportunity to apply for CTA-endorsed Disability and Life insurance with no health questions asked. There are benefits we receive as educators from The Standard that you do not get with American Fidelity.

I hope these next few weeks will be easy ones for you as we get ready to wrap up 2022.

In unity,
Diana
