Welcome to the PTU website!
The PTU has a proud history of representing all of the teachers of Providence from long-term substitutes in pool to regularly appointed teachers We are a professional organization that is over 1900 members strong and growing.
Imagine your working hours being at the whim of administration? Imagine that if you are female you would be terminated once married? Imagine pregnancy being just cause for termination? Imagine no duty free lunch? Prior to gaining the right to collective bargaining under the Michaelson Act, teachers worked under these and many other unthinkable conditions.
Today’s Providence Teachers Union is progressive and solutions-driven and steadfastly committed to teacher’s rights. We have learned from those who have come before us and will leave a legacy of professionalism long after we are gone. Always focused on improvement of your salaries, benefits and working conditions.
