October 11th- Union Solidarity Action RE: COVID Leave 

PAT members, please show support for our union coalition members by signing this petition asking PPS to honor their promise to allow those with COVID-19 to use quarantine leave. This ensures that members will not have to make the choice between exposing co-workers to COVID-19 and exhausting their sick leave bank. See the petition link.

From the petition: "COVID leave allows staff the dignity to rest and recover without having to choose between meeting financial obligations and exposing students, co-workers, teachers, and parents to this virus."

In addition, a wide coalition of PPS employee unions is organizing to turn out members for the October 11th board meeting to raise our voices on this important safety issue. Please come to the Dr. Matthew Prophet Education Service Center (formerly BESC) at 6:00pm on Tuesday, October 11th.  Wear your PAT Blue proud, stay for public comment, and then head home. For those who would like more information or would like to testify on this issue during public comment, please email [email protected] for more information.
