“Dear PoPville,

I currently work for Community Academy Public Charter School. As you may have heard, it is closing at the end of the current school year.

Despite having signed contracts, employees were recently informed that it is very unlikely that we will be paid for leave hours we have accumulated. This is especially disappointing as the organization continues to take any responsibility; placing the blame on others. Many employees are afraid to speak out.

I am hoping you can bring attention to this issue and that some of your readers might have suggestions.

I have attached the letter employees were sent:
