We ask that you sign this petition calling for a 10 percent pay raise for all school district employees. The Corpus Christi American Federation of Teachers, the only labor union for teachers and support professionals in the Coastal Bend, makes this request after careful consideration and extensive consultation with our membership.

Even before the COVID crisis struck, our members reported widespread concerns. Now, teachers must personally pay for all sorts of work-related costs just to do their job. Feedback and membership surveys also show the following:

• An overwhelming majority report that school closures and online teaching have increased their workload and worsened stress.

• Most members believe their healthcare costs are a serious financial burden.

• Working conditions create significant stress with 67% attributing their workload, 63% their current salary, and 55% their paperwork requirements as contributing factors.

To win this campaign, we need your support by signing and sharing this petition today. Share this petition with your friends, family, and coworkers. Share it with your acquaintances and Facebook friends. Share it online. Share it today.
