Christie joined Teamsters Local 14 in 2019. An Educational Support Professional for 13 years, Christie was an integral part of the campaign to unionize CCSD staff under the Teamsters.
She spoke in front of the NLRB about the unfairness of the SuperMajority Rule, which imposed an expectation that all 12,000 staff, spread across large areas, would have to be in the same unit in order to unionize. Thanks in part to Christie’s work organizing in CCSD, Support Staff Professionals have won the best contract they’ve ever had. She now works to support CCSD Support Staff full-time, as a Titan Operator for Local 14. Christie is a mother to two and has two grandchildren.
