Be careful of what you sign!

As part of the application for RTTT funds, local districts must sign agreements (LoA or MoU) with their employee unions showing support for the reforms designated in the grant. This is a voluntary move on the part of the union. It is not mandated. By signing the agreement you are committing you and your local’s support to the reforms.

If you are approached to sign such a document, contact your UniServ director and your local leadership team before you sign. This is a huge decision with consequences for you and your members. It requires everyone’s best thinking and input into the decision.
