Welcome to the Paterson Education Association digital contract website. On, this site you can search the contract and you can also find any provision by article number. Additional enforcement notes are provided with select articles.
Our contractual rights are only meaningful if members know them and invoke them. One of our basic rights as workers is the right to union representation.
Whenever you suspect a discussion with an administrator may lead to discipline, invoke your Weingarten rights by saying the words below:
“If this discussion could in any way lead to my being disciplined or terminated or affect my personal working conditions, I respectfully request that my Union Representative be present at this meeting. Without a representative present, I choose not to participate further in this discussion.”
This is a primary and essential right.
