“Celebrating our Successes, Organizing for our Future”
May 3 and 4, 2019, Boston Park Plaza
For years, thesuper-wealthy and big corporations have fought against the existence of unions, and many observers predicted they’d be successful. But instead, the last two years have seen a resurgence of the union movement across the nation, including here in Massachusetts. Not only did we survive, we banded together and grew stronger.
As an AFT Massachusetts member, you know that we have more power when we join together through our union. We’re most effective when we tap into our most enduring source of power: our collective engagement and activism as educators, finding common cause with parents, students, and community.
Our solidarity is our strength, and nobody can take that away from us. From the Fund Our Future campaign and our work with the Massachusetts Education Justice Alliance, to the Member Organizer Institute and successful contract fights across the state, we’re growing our membership engagement, working with parents and students in our communities, and winning victories for our schools and students.
As we continue this critical work, get ready to join us for the 2019 AFT Massachusetts Convention! On May 3 and 4, 2019 at the Boston Park Plaza, we’ll hear from national and state labor leaders including AFT President Randi Weingarten, Arlene Inouye from the United Teachers of LA and Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley, present Distinguished Service Awards and scholarships, and further develop our collective strength as educators and organizers.
