Action Alert: Rally in Support of Merrick Academy Teachers

The teachers at Merrick Academy Charter School have been working for two years without a contract.  Their salaries are frozen, many at the 2005 DOE salary rate.  They are facing constant threats to their job security, days off and paychecks. Recently heat has become inadequate in the classrooms. Meanwhile, almost 25 percent of the school’s budget goes to Victory, a for-profit management company.

Join teachers, parents and the school community for a rally in support of Merrick’s teachers on Tuesday, December 22 at 5 p.m. at Merrick Academy Charter School (207-01 Jamaica Ave in Queens Village).

A leaflet for teachers is available here. We also have a leaflet for parents here. Please help spread the word!
