KIPP Charter School teacher updates members of CBTU St. Louis Chapter on contract negotiations

COALITION OF BLACK TRADE UNIONISTS (CBTU) St. Louis Chapter President Jay Ozier listens as American Federation of Teachers (AFT) Local 420 member Leonette Hilliard-White, a KIPP High School teacher, parent and member the union organizing committee, discusses organizing efforts at KIPP Charter School during a recent CBTU chapter meeting. Educators at KIPP voted overwhelmingly to form and join AFT late last year. If negotiations don’t improve at the bargaining table, Hillard-White said, there may be a solidarity request from other unions. – Byron Clemmons/AFT Local 420 photo
