Our Contract

Our collective bargaining agreement with DCPS expired September 30, 2019. While we continue to operate under the current contract, we're in negotiations to improve the contract to ensure both teachers and students can succeed. 

Our contract guides the day-to-day work of educators, protects our rights and clearly defines our responsibilities. It’s vital that we enter these talks with clear demands, and that these demands truly represent the thinking of WTU members.
