About the ​2023-24 ​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. ​In this contract, teachers are focusing on sustained, ​specific support to help make the entire school ​system safer and more responsive to student ​needs. Download our two-page summary of WTU’s ​contract requests here. However, we cannot do ​this alone. We need DCPS to take WTU’s ​#realsolutionsforkids seriously. Yet, it took DCPS

three months after our contract expired to agree to our 1st contract ​negotiations date! DCPS continues to threaten to take away current ​teacher rights from the contract instead of focusing on educational ​issues. On March 22nd., Ward 8 teachers from Anacostia HS and ​Boone Elementary School walked out of school at 3:30PM to protest ​DCPS’ current stance. On March 25th, teachers from Ballou HS, ​Ballou Stay, and Simon ES held their own rally for a new contract ​supported by the talented students from the Ballou HS’ Majestic ​Marching Band & Ward 8 Councilmember Trayon White. We will not ​stop! It’s hard to beat a teacher who never gives up!
