Together we negotiate and defend our contract to improve wages and working conditions, assist members with professional development and career advancement, advocate at the local, state, and federal level for the resources we need to provide world-class education, pursue racial and social justice in our community, and tirelessly fight for the schools Columbus students deserve!
