Your vote is your voice

AFT President Randi Weingarten’s latest column outlines the urgency of using our voices—our votes—in this life-changing election, when we will make a choice “between President Donald Trump, who has trafficked in chaos, fear, lies and division, and former Vice President Joe Biden, who seeks to reverse Trump’s failures on COVID-19 and the economy, and to unite and uplift the American people.” Besides the four crises we face—a pandemic, an economic crisis, racism and a climate emergency—democracy itself is on the ballot, as Trump continues to cast doubt on the legitimacy of the election.

‘Back to school’ like never before

In her September New York Times column, AFT President Randi Weingarten says that going back to school has never looked like it does now. Weingarten explains that because of President Donald Trump’s response to the coronavirus, which has been chaotic, contradictory and inept, and the lack of federal guidance and funding, we’re seeing a patchwork of school reopening plans across the country.

We are moving all of our current existing AFT members to a new dues payment system.

To all Current Members, we are moving all of our AFT members to a new dues payment system. Switch your dues payment to the new system TODAY!

Texas lawmakers are attempting to strip away your right to pay AFT membership dues via payroll deduction. We see this as an attempt to silence our voice on educational issues. Therefore, Fort Bend AFT is transitioning all of our members to a new dues payment system so we can retain our power and keep our collective voice. Moving our members to the new payment system will allow us to continue standing strong, united, and using our collective voice on issues that matter to public education employees.

We need each and every member to take 5 minutes to switch their dues payment to the new bank draft system ASAP.
