NEWARK — The Newark Teachers union said Thursday its members will no longer “volunteer” to work extra hours after the school day ends in protest of several of Superintendent Cami Anderson’s reforms.

“I know you have been waiting for this,” John Abeigon, the union’s director of operations, told a crowd of about 50 inside the union’s headquarters.

Abeigon said that starting Tuesday the teachers will begin taking efforts to no longer work before or after their work day ends and to clock in and out at the same time.

Instead, the teachers will participate in “informational picket lines” during non-school day hours to explain their concerns to the public, according to Abeigon.
