South Bronx Educators Demand Justice! Call TODAY!

Thank you to all of those who have reached out on behalf of New York City Charter High School for Architecture, Engineering and Construction Industries (AECI) teachers. Join us for the final push of our call-in campaign to support these educators.

This week we are targeting board chair Irma Zardoya, president and CEO of the New York City Leadership Academy, to help demand justice for teachers at this charter school in the Bronx.

In January 2010, teachers at AECI formed a union to provide a positive and stable learning environment for their students. They have been working for two years without a contract. Meanwhile, AECI’s administration has engaged in a campaign of intimidation against teachers; they have suspended, terminated and otherwise disciplined union activists and supporters.

Call board chair Irma Zardoya at 917-882-3533 and tell her to respect teachers’ rights.
