Over 100 members of SESPA gathered with handmade signs to tell the public about their situation.
They marched along First Ave and N 185th in Shoreline to stand up for their rights.
They are engaged in contract talks currently, but the District and Mediator called off talks till September 10th. The workers are asking for a contract in which they do not lose ground. They are calling attention to the big raises granted to administrators as workers work days are being cut and budgets are being slashed.

About ten of their members and another five spoke at the School Board meeting to express their concerns about the policies of the School District towards workers.
They are calling on the School Board and Superintendent for fairness in their contract talks.
Their motto is -
Our living wage motto is Respected, Valued, Paid. We want to work to live not live to work!
