Hundreds of MTEA members, led by the Riverside University High School drum line, marched alongside MPS parents, community supporters, and members of other Milwaukee unions in this morning’s Labor Day march. Members handed out “no takeover” buttons and invited workers from other unions to join our city-wide Walk In for Public Schools events on Friday, September 18.
