Help Rochester Teachers Get Paid Family Leave

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!


Rochester City School District currently offers their teachers NO PAID FAMILY LEAVE, even as New York State has enacted paid family leave for ALL private sector employees. New York State has acknowledged the benefit of Paid Family Leave to families and our economy, but the RCSD has initially denied our request to adopt the NYS Family Leave Act into our living contract. 

Check out some of the many benefits of paid family leave here: 

  1. The benefits of paid leave for children are real, majority of research says
  2. The Economic Benefits of Paid Parental Leave
  3. New York City Teachers Get Paid Family Leave

It's time for our district to support the teachers that serve it's students day after day and year after year. We will be better teachers and better workers if we have the time to bond and grow with our new babies before we rush back into the classroom, and we cannot do that without paid family leave. 

We implore the RCSD to hear us, and swiftly adopt Paid Family Leave into our contract.
