NEARI Reacts to Governor Veto on "Continuing Contract"

Statement from National Education Association Rhode Island (NEARI) on the veto of the “contract continuation” bill:

(July 19, 2017) “We are disappointed that Governor Raimondo turned her back on classroom educators and Rhode Island public employees who were seeking respect and fundamental fairness in the bargaining process,” said NEARI President Larry Purtill. “It is no surprise that a politician who made her bones on Wall Street is incapable of understanding the needs of working Rhode Islanders. Clearly, ‘Gina from Smithfield’ has lost her way. We respectfully urge the Assembly to override this thoughtless veto.”
