WHAT WE CARE ABOUT

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.

We fight to win contracts that not only improve wages and benefits for our families, but that also improve staffing and programs for the students and families we serve. As education workers and parents, our commitment to ensuring every student has access to a quality education is deeply personal.

As union members, we exercise our collective voice at the ballot box to ensure that the things we care about—like fair pay, workplace respect, access to affordable health care—are prioritized. And we hold our elected officials accountable to students. If they say they’re going to expand funding for public education or pass laws that help working people, we make sure they do just that.

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.

Summer Fund for Classified Employees

In June 2018, Governor Brown signed the 2018-2019 State Budget, which includes $50 million in funding for a summer relief fund for classified employees, matched 1-to-1 by the state.
