Woburn Teachers Association Statement

Woburn Educators in a rare occurrence and in overwhelming numbers voted 98% against an unreasonable contract proposal from the Mayor and School Committee.  We need a fair contract that helps us support our students.

We are fighting for

  • Increased time on learning, not less
  • Student health and well being
  • Educator led professional development
  • Trust in professional educators to utilize appropriate teaching materials
  • Clear and detailed contractual language
  • A living wage for our paraprofessionals
  • Fair and professional compensation
