Unfortunately, many employees believe that standing up for their rights might result in some kind of reprisal or retaliation from an administrator or the District. Members are protected against this kind of action by the Educational Employees Relations Act (EERA).

The language referring to this right to exercise our rights as members of a union is found in the Non-Discrimination article of our contract: Specifically, Article 7B, which reads,

“The District and/or the Association shall not legally impose or threaten to impose reprisals on employees, to discriminate or threaten to discriminate against employees, or otherwise to interfere with, restrain, or coerce employees because of their exercise of rights guaranteed by the EERA.”
