Gloucester Township Public Schools teachers protest over expired contract

SICKLERVILLE, N.J. - A rally outside Mullen Middle School Monday night in Sicklerville as teachers protest over an unresolved contract. Dozens from schools in the Gloucester Township Public School system are demanding what they say they deserve."I feel so unhappy in my district right now," said Alicia Merkel. She teaches 7th grade at Charles Lewis Middle School.

She says it's a 24-7 job and, because of the pandemic, she brings work home daily and on weekends to make sure her students and parents are in the loop."I am very aggravated that we have to be here just because it’s Hanukkah. I want this contract settled for my Hanukkah tonight.

I should be home with my family, lighting my candles and I’m here in the cold. This is ridiculous,"
