    First, your union can give you a copy of the contract.
    However, for now, let's just assume you have to give 2 months
    notice. Your contract will lay out the details.

    Continue to work and look for a new position at the same
    time. It happens all the time so no one will view it as a
    big negative. Be careful when you get an interview to not
    focus on just the negative when you are asked why you would
    like to leave the position. It will be a big turn-off if all
    you do is complain. Know what you are going to say going in.

    When you get an offer, notify your administration in
    writing. Expect to have to stay the entire length your
    contract dictates from when you gave your notice. If it is
    less, so be it. It will be an awkward and difficult time
    period but there will be an end in sight.

    Good luck.
