With so many serious issues facing Portland educators, it is more important than ever to have a group of committed representatives, who listen to and advocate for the teachers in your building. It's time for each building to elect their representatives!
PAT bylaws allow for one representative to be elected per every 9 PAT members in your building. We will conduct trainings for all reps so no experience is necessary. Voting should be done by secret ballot. Submit your election results online at the PAT website by Wednesday, May 25th. If you have any questions or would like assistance in conducting rep elections at your site, please contact Vice-President Suzanne Cohen at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can help with recruiting reps, setting up an organizing structure, or running the election.
