During the beginning and end of each semester, Education Austin plans out several weeks of membership recruitment activities, or a “blitz.” Recruitment is important to the work that we do; without our membership, we wouldn’t be able to accomplish all that we do every year. So at the end of the school year, we offer potential new members an opportunity to join Education Austin for a trial run – join the union, but pay no dues until August of 2016. This gives folks an opportunity to see what Education Austin is about, to join us for some of our rallies and activities, and “kick the tires,” so to speak. If you see your campus on our visit list this week, some and see us! We will bring pizza to all of our lunch visits, and chocolate to our after school visits.
For our members – we will be bringing our new Education Austin t-shirts for everyone, so make sure to come visit and get your very own #unionproud shirt!
