Across Michigan on Wednesday, Aug. 3, MEA and AFT Michigan members will gather together in their communities to protest Gov. Rick Snyder’s frivolous appeal of a court ruling that school employees are owed 3% of their salary that the state illegally stole from paychecks.
Find a protest site near you, and sign up to join in! We need a big turnout to send a loud message!
Snyder’s decision to appeal is just another example of the wrong priorities that Snyder and his allies have about public education. School employees are fed up with Snyder’s constant disrespect and attacks on educators and public education. It’s time to gather together and make our voices heard and to advocate for the public schools that Michigan students deserve.
Sign up to attend a protest in a city of your choice.
