OUR CAMPAIGNS

We care about having good jobs, providing quality education, and building healthy, vibrant communities, and we believe these things all go hand-in-hand. That’s why we lead movements for change at the bargaining table, at our work sites, and at the ballot box.

As education workers and parents, we fight to win contracts that improve our livelihoods and improve the quality education. And as union members, we exercise our collective voice at the ballot box to ensure that the things we care about are prioritized. If an elected official says they’re going to expand funding for public education or pass laws that help working people and students, we make sure they do just that.

Proposition 15: The Schools & Communities First Funding Act is a landmark funding measure that—if passed in November—will fix over 40 years of divestment in our public schools and communities.

Child Care for All

Family child care providers give peace-of-mind to working parents by caring for their little ones every day. As educators, they play a vital role in their early development. Yet, providers are some of the lowest paid workers in the state and are denied the right to collective bargaining. With a new governor, this is the year we change that.
