About the 2023 Contract Campaign

Signed Contract Icon

Last year's contract dealt with big issues to get schools reopened safely and ensure educators a baseline level of respect needed to stay in the job, including retroactive pay raises for the past three years when they worked under an expired contract.

This time, teachers are focusing on sustained, specific support to help make the entire school system safer and more responsive to student needs. By Sept. 30th, 2023, we want to present the WTU membership with a new tentative agreement for their vote. DCPS must partner with us on this common goal!


Wear Red for Ed on Fridays

Wear red and take a selfie during your planning period or lunch break. Post it on your social media accounts and email it to the WTU: wtuaction@gmail.com

Take a selfie with a clock and/or “30 hand sign” so that WTU can post it on our social media pages to remind DCPS, the mayor, and the community about our contract expiring.
