Growing and strengthening west Michigan's middle class
GRAND RAPIDS April 8, 2016- As all five Grand Rapids Public School unions (GREA, GRESPA, GRACEN, GREOA and GRAEOP) continue to work without contracts, negotiations with the district have been largely fruitless. The contracts for each union expired last year.
Union members have been picketing from 4:30-5:30pm on Monday and Tuesday evenings, at the Board of Education building, 1331 Franklin St. SE, Grand Rapids, MI). This month’s pickets will take place on the April 11th, 12th, 18th, 19th, 25th and 26th.
All of labor is asked to come out to show solidarity with the teachers, professional staff and support staff. If you have time on Monday or Tuesday, let’s show the district that the staff of GRPS deserves fair contracts.
WHAT: Grand Rapids Education Association picketing
WHEN: Mondays and Tuesdays, from 4:30pm-5:30pm
WHERE: Board of Education Building, 1331 Franklin St SE in Grand Rapids
