BFS Union Strike Fund

Brooklyn Friends School faculty and staff will strike on Monday, October 5 if the Head of School and Board of Trustees do not cease their efforts to decertify the employees' union. We are raising money to support these brave workers who have done so much for our families. 

While the union will be providing a modest stipend to striking employees ($275 per week, which kicks in after seven days), this is not enough. Without our support, many of the faculty and staff who strike will face financial hardship and we want to do everything we can to support them.

The money raised here will be turned over to the union which will then distribute it to striking employees based on need. Please help us show BFS employees that we stand with them and will help them through this incredibly difficult time.  (If the administration does the right thing and a strike is averted, donated funds will be returned.)

In Solidarity,
