ASASP Union Times
July 28, 2023 XXV Edition
JOIN NOW!! Sick Leave Bank Open Enrollment July1-October 1, 2023
If you are new to ASASP, coming from one of the other unions, please do not think that you automatically rollover into ASASP. You must submit paperwork to enroll. You must contribute 3 days (24 hours) to the bank each year.
Once you are in, you are in until you request that we take you out. Once you are enrolled ,there is a
6 MONTH WAITING PERIOD before you can utilize the bank.
Involuntarily Transferred without Cause.........It Could Happen to You, Like it Happened to Me and So Many Others!
This is a fight that you can't believe you have been thrust into, because you've never received an unsatisfactory evaluation or written up for at all. I know it's hard to believe, but it happens. We must stand up against this madness every time it rears it's ugly head and we must support each other. Often times we hear about situations and think, "oh they must have done something!" None of us are perfect and we could all stand a little room for improvement at some point , but administrators must demand the same respect that other educators get when it comes involuntary transfers or demotions. We intend to take this argument as far as it needs to go for this practice to stop now!!
FFT Certification Required - Newly Assigned Assistant Principals
You do not want to be in a situation where you did not meet a specified requirement of the job, giving cause for someone to try to remove you from your position.
Please know that this is very serious business and we will fight for you, but we must first be proactive. So consider yourself warned.
Don't Talk About It, Be About it!!
