Elections for PAT Substitute Representatives for the 2022-2023 school year are here!
Please submit your name HERE by Monday, October the 24 if you are interested in serving as a Substitute Representative and attending our monthly Rep Assemblies on behalf of your fellow members.
Any Substitute Teacher who is a PAT member may nominate themselves for election as a PAT Substitute Representative.
PAT Representatives are the heart of the union. In addition to participating in the monthly PAT Representative Assemblies (RA's), Substitute Representatives take the lead in organizing and advocating for the Substitute members of PAT. This means Reps help to recruit newly hired substitutes into PAT, work to bring members together to discuss how best to organize and advocate around issues that matter to Substitutes, and work with PAT staff to support and represent the concerns and interests of Substitute members.
According to the PAT Bylaws: “One representative may be elected for each nine (9) full-time equivalent members or major fraction thereof, as of January 15, per site or group."
Around October 25th, we will send out the Substitute Rep Election ballot to all Substitute Members to vote.

Thank you for your time and interest!
