  1. I’m not seeing a link to the membership application. Please send me one – I’m a new classified employee with AISD. Thanks.

  2. I have been trying to become a member for over a month. I am not sure if you did not get my paper application that was send via USP in September but I need representation immediately. I have not been paid by my school district, I am under contract and in result of not being paid, I no longer can afford (pay 11/1/17) child care therefore, I am unable to come to work.

  3. I am a substitute teacher and expressed an interest in joining to your rep at a meeting at Burnet Middle school..I noticed that $35. was deducted from my paycheck today. Is there a rate for Substitute teachers?
