Welcome to our new and improved website! I wish this were under different terms as we all grapple daily with the five W’s. BTA continues to support you and enforce the rights and protections we have under our current MOU and contract. Now more than ever it is important to have our union in place. I hope the few who are not members will grow to see that what they are able to enjoy is a result of all of their colleagues’ joint efforts to support unionism.
Today we move forward and practice safe measures until COVID-19 retracts, and it becomes safe for us to return to a new sense of normalcy. BTA is here for all of our members and in spite of our imperfection, we will rise and show our Burbank community what consummate educators look like as we resume education through a distance learning platform.
I look forward to the day we can meet again in person. We will celebrate! Until then, be well and stay well.
After spending hours revisiting the MOU for clarity and revision, BTA has decided to POSTPONE the voting on the MOU to Tuesday, August 4 and Wednesday, August 5 in order to give members time to review it before voting. We now have the final MOU and the FAQ#2 based on the questions we received from you. Please review the MOU carefully and look at the FAQs. We hope this will give you the time to see the benefit of the MOU Regarding Covid-19 Pandemic and School Opening: Phase 1 in its entirety. As is stated in the MOU, if at any time we discover a need to go back to the table, we will.
We understand how difficult and stressful this time has been and want you to know that we truly understand the challenges that distance learning and teaching imposes on all of us.
