As dues paying MEA members, we the undersigned understand and support MEA’s efforts to operate efficiently within financial constraints. However, we firmly object to any office consolidation being implemented in a manner that costs any of our own office professionals their jobs. Office consolidations must guarantee some form of employment protection for those who have provided quality service to MEA members. To treat them as “at will” employees in the name of financial efficiency would put the lie to our bedrock union mission and beliefs. Worse, it would place MEA in a position that mirrors the position too often taken by school districts and the state in recent years, a position that places “cost efficiencies” above employment, a position that MEA asks us to oppose for the same reasons that our signatures appear here.

Comments: Sheri and Carol are very valuable to all of our members because they are efficient at what they do for us. They help to communicate all of the concerns that affect Rep. Council and our caucuses. The notifications of meetings, the minutes and the countless little details that they help members with including questions that Reps can't always answer are very important to all concerned. Please reconsider your decisions.
