Early Childhood Educators are professionals who hold a high level of expertise and knowledge. They have a degree or diploma and are paid substantially less than their peers who are teaching in kindergartens. Most are still making close to minimum wage. This is unacceptable and we as Early Childhood Educators will not stand to be taken advantage of anymore. We have one of the most important jobs in the world, shaping the minds and overall well being of children in their formative years. The quality of ECE for children depends on having skilled and qualified educators. Some ECEs are in a union currently, almost all of us pay membership dues to the college of Early Childhood Educators (due to low wages, and high membership cost some people were unable to hold onto their title of RECE/ECE) this is not helping us, and not right. We need to be united under one unizioned front.
If you would like to better the quality of pay and rights of ECE’s please sign this petition so that we can organize a new union together.
