AFT’s Bridge to the Future campaign

Karen Strictland, AFT Washington President, visited our Executive Council on December 7, 2022, to report on this year’s legislative campaign. Here is a summary of AFT Washington's legislative request:

  1. Approximate 2023 COLA of 7.8%. A COLA increase is already written into legislation and should be automatic.

  2. 6.5% faculty salary increase each year of the biennium (a total of 13%).

  3. PT faculty pay equity 85% of the comparable FT faculty salary.

What we can do to support this agenda

Sign this petition. AFT hopes to have 1,000 signatures by early January to show strong support for these requests.

A torrent of censorship

Nearly 250 years since our country’s founding, some Americans are still attempting to restrict others’ basic freedoms. In Florida and elsewhere, censoring books is part of larger efforts to exert greater control over and undermine education.
