For Executive Vice President
Curtis Kimmons is a native of Racine, Wisconsin. He studied at Business Management and Computer School in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Strayer University, Washington D.C. and at the University of Maryland University College. He has been a User Support Specialist for Montgomery County Public Schools since 2001, and was a Union Representative for healthcare in Minnesota and service employees of Montgomery County Public Schools (SEIU Locals) from 1994 to 2001.
As a L500 representative Curtis fought hard for MCPS workers --- Seeking fair treatment, respect for our jobs and to raise the standard of living for MCPS employees and their families
Curtis is a true believer in the American Labor Movement, and for worker rights and economic justice all of Montgomery County Schools support staff --- from User Support Specialists to Bus Attendants.
Curtis will use his office of Executive Vice President as a platform to give a voice to those who have been forgotten by the School District --- Food service workers, building service workers and transportation workers.
We need livable wages for every supporting service employee. Let's stop debating about 2 or 3 or 4 per cent raises Our work should allow us to live in this county.
Retirement in Dignity
We need credit for all hours worked and all money earned at MCPS, a full year's pension credit for a full school year's work, and better retirement health care benefits
Strong Representation for You
We will ask members what they want in bargaining, keep members informed during bargaining, and show them all the language before we ask for a vote.
We will reestablish strong grievance representation, prompt responses to your questions to the union, and frequent reports about our grievance and field staff.
Our union has again allowed 3 hour workers in food service, temporary workers in security and transportation, and over 100 jobs to remain open in building service. Our union must lead the fight to assist these abused workers and protect our jobs and benefits.
We will reinstate the Fair Dues Committee to recommend a fair dues structure based on the wages and hours of members. We will make sure the proposal comes to a vote of the members so we can have fair dues that everyone can afford.
Please vote for the FightBack500 slate.
