Today was the rally in Ogden, where about 1,000 people were in attendance! Several JEA members were there to support the Ogden District teachers in their fight for collective bargaining and negotiating in good faith.
Speakers included Greg Johnson from the NEA Executive Committee, Dr. Donald Thompson who started shared governance in Salt Lake District, a mom of Ogden District students, UEA President Sharon Gallagher-Fishbaugh, and OEA President Doug Stephens. Following the rally, we walked two blocks to the Ogden District office so the Ogden teachers could ask questions they have about the letter they received and the over 100 changes to their contract. No one from the Ogden District Office came out to talk.
We hope the Ogden District will see the support the Ogden teachers have and will return to negotiating with OEA in good faith.
