Election of Site REP Reminder

Please remember the important task of electing site representatives. Site reps are super important for making sure that our contract is honored and that all members are represented at our policy making council. This is democracy in action! Many sites elect their representatives in the spring and some in the fall. If you have not held an election for this year’s reps., please do so as soon as possible. Please also make sure that the UTR office knows about your elected reps for this year. Each site has the right to one rep for every 15 members, plus one for every fraction greater than 50% of 15. For example: A site with 23 members would have the right to two reps.

After the election at your site, REPS please email UTR staff to notify them on who the REPS are at your site.  

Thank you for all you do!

In Solidarity,

Demetrio Gonzalez
President, United Teachers of Richmond CTA/NEA
