Bargaining for the Common Good
PGCEA is negotiating a new contract with the Prince George’s County Public School System.
Under our “Bargaining for the Common Good” model, we are working with students, parents, educators and other community activists to advocate on behalf of quality public schools for all our students.
In addition to fair compensation for highly-trained educators, we will be tackling important issues like smaller class sizes; the kind and amount of testing; and a healthy, safe and secure learning environment for students and educators.
Proposals will be updated after presented to the Board of Education.
On Wednesday, April 10, nearly 150 educators, parent, and community members gathered for PGCEA’s most recent round of bargaining with PGCPS. We presented proposals on the final two planks outlined in our “Bargaining for the Public Good” platform proposals:
- Restorative Practices
- Professional Autonomy and Voice
The negotiations team for Prince George’s County Educators met for an open bargaining session to negotiate the upcoming teacher/educator contracts. These bargaining sessions are open to the public so that educators, parents and the community can see the full negotiation process.
PGCEA is standing up for smaller class sizes. We believe our children learn better in classes that are not overcrowded. Watch and share our latest Bargaining for the Common Good video on this important issue and get involved!
Bargaining for the Common Good: Evaluating Teachers. The next session is set for February 6th at PGCEA. We will be presenting our proposals on Evaluation, Sensible Workload and Less Testing & More Learning. If you are interested in attending to observe click here. Some sessions will be held around the county to provide for member and community attendance. Look for a session near you and communications as an update will go out after each session. Each school via Association Representative and Contract Action Team (CAT) will have communication and as needed action task.
