The families of Melrose have a right to expect the education and learning needs of their children will be addressed in the public schools. The committed educators of the Melrose Education Association are fighting for their students by demanding progress at the bargaining table on essential classroom issues.
The union educators of the Melrose Education Association are acting to secure:
- Enough planning time to prepare the best lessons possible for their students;
- Fair and competitive compensation to retain current educators and attract the best new educators; and
- Improved working and learning conditions.
AFT Massachusetts stands in support of the Melrose educators receiving fair contracts and calls on school administrators to immediately negotiate contracts that are good for students and fair to teachers.
