WORCESTER – The Worcester Teachers’ Union is hoping to motivate the School Committee to issue a new three-year contract for Superintendent Maureen Binienda.
According to a union-wide email sent from Educational Association of Worcester [EAW] union president Roger Nugent, the union plans to address the school committee at Thursday night’s meeting on April 25 in support of Binienda and a new contract.
In the email, Nugent is asking for union members for feedback on how the union should present their support behind Binienda.
According to Nugent, he’s received inquiries from many members “asking how and what the EAW plans to do to support [Binienda] and advocate to the School Committee for an additional three year contract for her.”
Nugent ended the email by saying, “We want to motivate the School Committee to issue Superintendent Binienda an additional three year contract.”
