A safe reopening for all education workers and students

The Lane County Labor Chapter Education Caucus includes unions (OSEA, EEA, AFT) representing educational workers in K-12, community college, and university settings.

Understandably, there is growing pressure to reopen schools and resume the work that our members love to do. However, we want to return to work under conditions that protect workers, students, and the health of the community. To meet these objectives, we have developed a set of principles for the re-opening of educational institutions in our area. We urge fellow unionists and members of the public to pledge their support for these principles. They reflect our shared commitment to ensuring safe working and learning conditions for all.
