The Alameda Education Association (AEA), the union that represents teachers in Alameda’s public school system, began reaching out to businesses along Park and Webster streets on Tuesday. Teachers wearing red T-shirts visited shops in the city’s two major business districts. They asked the business owners to post AEA signs in their windows. The signs feature an anchor, the teachers’ campaign logo.
