Looking for Commitment

During the last election legislators courted us, sweet talked us, and promenaded with us down the campaign trail. We have patiently built a relationship as we moved into the legislative session. Now, we are all dressed up with no place to go. Now, we need a commitment.

The Delaware State Education Association along with our coalition partners in State Workers United for a Better Delaware have started to approach legislators with a pledge statement. If lawmakers sign on to the statement, they are in opposition to the proposed pay cut and agree to work with the unions to find other solutions. We are getting late in the session and it is time for legislators to let us know if they stand with us.

On June 11th in Dover we will celebrate the legislators who have committed to us and send a message to those who have not. The event will feature speakers at 6:00PM.
