EEA and The League of Women Voters are hosting a viewing of the award winning documentary ‘Backpack Full of Cash’ narrated by Matt Damon. This documentary explores our national traditional public school systems under attack by those who would privatize and turn the Education Budget into a commitment to educate every child to the best of his or her ability, regardless of individual differences or zip codes. Please copy and paste this link in your browser and take the time to view a 2 minute preview of the film: https://vimeo.com/189823117

Escambia ESPs ...
Your membership is very important!
The larger our numbers, the stronger our voice!
In November of 2013, the district accused me of interfering with an investigation they asked me to conduct. Eventually, Escambia County wrongfully fired me from my job!
For the next 14 months, EEA stood by me.
EEA represented me here in the district. EEA paid for a lawyer to challenge my dismissal. This saved me approximately $46,000. On January 14, 2015, I am returning to my job with full back pay and benefits.
If you are not a member of your union, I encourage you to join me in support of those who support us.
In the spring of 2015, I was called to a meeting to discuss issues involving my probationary status as a new employee. I asked my supervisor for my Union Representative to accompany me in the meeting. All I wanted was someone to be on my side. My supervisor became upset and by the end of the day told me I was being dismiss because I had not successfully completed my probationary period.
Escambia ESP, my Union, stood by me. They assigned me an attorney and within a few months I was returned to work in a new location, in a job that better suited my skills as an employee and with back pay.
Without my union I might still be unemployed and all I had to do was maintain my membership.
