City Union of Baltimore members joined with members from other AFT-Maryland locals in Annapolis to lobby for a range of issues important to Maryland public employees.

Strikes and shutdowns

In Los Angeles, UTLA members took to the picket lines because their schools are starved of resources. In Washington, D.C., President Trump has shut down the government to secure his border wall. In her monthly New York Times column, AFT President Randi Weingarten writes that when our elected leaders fail, whether by not funding public schools or by shutting down services that provide for our safety, they strike at the very heart of what makes us a democratic republic.

Statement from CUB President on Cafeteria Worker Assault

A Message to Members from CUB President Antoinette Ryan-Johnson on the Assault on a Cafeteria Worker at National Academy Foundation Middle/High School

The recent violent assault of a long-serving Cafeteria Manager and loyal member of the City Union of Baltimore, resulting in severe injuries requiring hospitalization, is a distressing event. Attacks on cafeteria staff and other school related personnel have been understudied and underpublicized and leave this population at risk for violence. Our schools are, and should be, an environment of learning, collaboration, and community; not an environment of disrespect and violence where students feel at liberty to assault anyone including a caring and respectful Cafeteria Manager.
