1/18/2021~Rep meeting takeaways:
- If you have a problem at your school before filing a grievance know what would reconcile the situation for you and have you/would you be willing to talk to administration. Many times this conversation between you and admin will resolve the issue without the union becoming involved which could help keep a relationship intact.
- Remember if you are asked to do an extra duty and you say yes you are volunteering with no additional compensation. If you are told to do an extra duty then you should submit a timesheet for that time because you are entitled to compensation.
- If you are out and you virtually teach you should not get charged sick days. If you are out and you write lesson plans you will be charged.
