Welcome New Affiliates: MNEA!

Last night we had the pleasure of welcoming our newest affiliate the Metro Nashville Education Association! We are so happy to have union teachers join our Council. We have been so inspired to see teachers standing up and exercising collective power all over the country, and we know that we are a stronger labor movement when we join together.

Metro Nashville School Board Endorsements

The CLC is proud to announce the endorsement of Metro Nashville and Davidson County School Board candidates Thomas “TC” Weber of District 2, Tyese Hunter of District 6, and Gini Pupo Walker of District 8. Candidates submitted questionnaires pertaining to their commitment to students, workers, and support staff as well as met with local union delegates to discuss the candidate's awareness and concern regarding our affiliates’ pressing issues. CLC is confident these school board candidates, once elected, will fulfill their commitment to prioritize the needs and well-being of Nashville students, workers, and the greater community.

Election day is August 2nd. Early voting runs July 13 - 28.

Workers Compensation Information

This morning we had the pleasure of being trained on TN Workers Comp rights by Jeff Francis from the TN Bureau of Workers' Compensation. Many many workers, stewards, and even union reps don't know all of their rights under Workers Comp. Please familiarize yourselves with the following information (download here) to guarantee that injured workers receive all benefits entitled to them by law.

If you have any questions about Workers Compensation, feel free to visit https://www.tn.gov/workforce/injuries-at-work/ or contact Jeff Francis, 615-532-4812, b.jeff.francis@tn.gov.
