Howard teachers union pushes job action

May 16, 1991|By Howard County Bureau of The Sun

The leaders of the Howard County teachers' union, angry because the county executive and council denied them pay raises, are recommending that their 2,700 members stop volunteering for after-school meetings and activities.

The move would cramp teacher participation in PTA meetings andalmost halt parent-teacher conferences and activities such as science fairs, according to Jim Swab, president of the Howard County Education Association. Mr. Swab said yesterday that the recommendation was approved Tuesday by a voice vote of about 100 association representatives and that teachers at "a dozen schools" were drawing up lists to decide what they would not do.
