Ohio Teachers

Is it typical for admin to discourage joining a union? I thought this was illegal.

That is frustrating. However, please don't let that discourage you. Your local Union negotiates your contract. They will also provide you legal protection as well.

I’m in Ohio. Our admin can’t even be in the room. If we’re taking about union stuff. Pretty sure they are to remain neutral

They’re definitely supposed to remain neutral. No one had ever said anything negative to me specifically, but I have overheard negative comments. Sorry, that would be upsetting.

That’s absolutely a problem and I would report it to the union. Depending on what exactly they’re saying or doing, it could very well be illegal. The bottom line is, they can’t threaten your job security or use other forms of intimidation or retaliation to dissuade you from joining. Call your union ASAP and get this behavior on record.

Interesting Juneteenth fact: Although Juneteenth is commonly thought of as celebrating the end of slavery in the United States, it was still legal and practiced in Union border states until December 6, 1865 when the 13th Amendment was ratified.

My maternity leave will be over in couple weeks and I will be working from home with our daughter until the end of this year. We’ve decided not to send her to daycare this year due to COVID. Husband will go to work early and come home by lunch time to WFH and help take care of her. I’m having a lot of anxiety thinking how we will manage WFH with 4mo! Please share your experience and advice. We are open to part time nanny but this COVID thing is making us really concerned. Thanks in advance.
