Making community connections

We, as an association, are ready to embark on the next phase of our organizing plan. Our focus this year is FSUTA in the community. Members of the community have already begun to reach out to FSUTA for help in resolving issues that negatively impact students. FSUTA is joining and working with community groups such as “Common Ground” and “Music for our Children.” Solano First Federal Credit Union is giving support and terrific member benefits to FSUTA teachers.

We are joining the Napa/Solano Central Labor Council and continuing our volunteer work with the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano by committing to at least one shift per month.

Our FSUTA leaders will meet next week with community members and potential FSUSD Governing Board candidates to discuss the results of our 2018-19 surveys. n case you have not heard, a letter written by Governing Board President David Isom stated the board has rejected the opportunity to join us in study sessions to share teachers’ survey responses. The trustees have made it abundantly clear that their “core values” are only for show. Isom, who is a candidate for Solano County Supervisor District 4, might want to consider that many teachers – including yours truly – live in District 4. We are watching, we talk to our neighbors and we vote!

FSUTA in the community! We want what’s best for students. Parents and the community are with us. I hope to see you all at our 3:30 p.m. social Friday at Heretic Brewing Company, 1052 Horizon Drive.
