Thursday night, over 250 SEIU Local 500 members turned up before a meeting of the Montgomery County Board of Education with representatives of the Local 500 Executive Board.
The Local 500 Executive Board members were cheered on by their fellow union members as they went and even though they were inside, the Board of Education could hear the chants and the cries of “RESPECT” coming from several hundred energized union activists.
Board of Education President Michael A. Durso took time to walk down the line of supporting services union members and shake hands and thank everyone for their contributions to student success.
Board of Education member Jill Ortman-Fouse tweeted “Thank you all for your service to our schools and our kids!”
This was just the first of a series of upcoming actions intended to hold public officials accountable and to make clear one important message: YOU CAN’T DO IT WITHOUT US!
