AFT SETS BUDGET PROTEST RALLY

The St. Thomas-St. John chapter of the American Federation of Teachers has scheduled a school-day morning rally at the Legislature Building on Wednesday, Sept. 15, to protest budget issues.
The rally is "to protest against the proposals to balance the budget on the backs of government workers," an AFT flyer states.
The teachers union is calling for those taking part in the protest to meet at Emancipation Garden at 8 a.m.
According to the flyer, the decision to hold the protest was made at a meeting of AFT representatives on Wednesday, Sept. 8.
