Guess my summer break is extra long this year!


Guess my summer break is extra long this year!
I work(ed) at a charter in Silicon Valley. This year, I played a big role in unionizing the teaching staff at my school. We're advocating for more staff to provide special Ed services and mental health services (both places our students are woefully underserved), and to be paid when are required to work outside of contract hours. We've been been very by-the-book legally, and haven't been disruptive to daily operations.



Friday, after kids were dismissed on the last day of school, I'm pulled into the office and told that for "business reasons" I'm being let go. They won't clarify what that means, or acknowledge that they'd already offered me a contract for next year, which I signed in April. Oh, and two other union organizers were fired the same way that day, which I'm sure is just a coincidence.



But hey, instead of commuting an hour, maybe I will get to walk next door to get to work next year.
