3 Actions to take around AACPS Contractor Positions


Aug 09, 2022

Watch our member meeting here

On Monday, August 8, TAAAC leaders held a meeting with members to provide updates and information about AACPS’ choice to use contractors to fill vacant positions in our district. While the AACPS Board of Education believes this is legal, our collective bargaining agreement defines TAAAC as the exclusive representative of our bargaining unit, Unit 1 employees of Anne Arundel County Public Schools, and prohibits the Board of Education from unilaterally reducing the scope of the bargaining unit.

Below are 3 things you can do to take action and make sure the Board of Education hears from you!

2. Email your Board of Education members


Sending personalized emails is the best way to get the Board of Education to take action. We must demand they bargain with our union over hiring contractors to fill vacant positions, increase our wages to address recruitment and retention, and request more time (both in individual instructional planning, and half-days to allow more time for required special educator paperwork to be completed).
