Here is an official statement from SOMEA leadership on the significance of wearing our shirts on Thursday, February 16, 2017

March 2nd, 2017 is the official start of contract negotiations between the South Orange-Maplewood Education Association (SOMEA) and the South Orange-Maplewood Board of Education. As a show of unity and support for all 700+ members of SOMEA, whose voices will be represented at the negotiations table, SOMEA leadership is asking that members wear their official SOMEA t-shirts in their respective buildings and worksites on various dates throughout the remainder of the 2016-2017 school year. This action is meant to be a demonstration of support and solidarity among our membership, as we embark on our negotiations with the Board.  It is meant to celebrate the many things that the members of SOMEA make happen in and outside of the classroom on a daily basis. It is important for us to be unified and to acknowledge our contributions to making the School District of South Orange and Maplewood one of the most sought after school districts in the state.”
