MTI Faculty Reps/ESEA Building Reps – The Cornerstones of Our Union
MTI is a member led Union and that is reflected in our motto, “Collectively we decide, united we act”. Faculty / Building Representatives, elected by their colleagues, serve a number of key functions in our collective work. They provide direct support and information to members in every school/worksite across MMSD. They serve on the Faculty Representative Council/Building Representatives Meeting, MTIESEA’s policy making bodies, and meet monthly during the school year to guide the work of our Union. Faculty Reps provide opportunities for members to share ideas and concerns around issues that may be specific or more broadly felt. They represent their colleagues in proactively addressing concerns through Collaborative Problem Solving and other work. The end goal is a Union Strong community for every educator and staff in MMSD.
With all of these roles and responsibilities it is important that a number of people take on the role of Faculty/Building Rep. The bylaws of both MTI and MTI-ESEA allow for 1 Rep per 15 members. Additional members can be involved as Alternate Reps. Representatives from both units are elected during the last week in April. Over the next couple of months we will be sharing more about the important role our Reps play in MTI. As you learn more we hope that you will consider becoming involved as a Rep or Alternate at your school/worksite. For more information contact one of the Reps at your school or President Waity (firstname.lastname@example.org).
