Anaheim Elementary Education Assoc. and Board of Ed at IMPASSE! (tags)
PUBLIC NOTICE: The Anaheim Elementary Education Association (AEEA) and the Anaheim City School District (ACSD) bargaining teams met with a State mediator on Friday, July 27, 2007. While the entire AEEA bargaining team came prepared to reach a settlement – cancelling vacations and other personal plans – a crucial member of the District team was NOT in attendance. This absence reinforced the perception that teachers are not a priority in the Anaheim City School District, and it is an indication that reaching a timely settlement is not a District priority. The presence of over one hundred AEEA members, waving signs, wearing buttons, and encouraging honks of support, inspired the AEEA bargaining team and showed the mediator that both its membership and their needs are truly being represented. Public support of AEEA UNION members is very much appreciated!
