CUTA Message to Members from Amanda Fanning (30 September 2014):
Hello, CUSD Staff,
Welcome back to the 2014-2015 school year! This year begins with nearly forty new certificated members at our sites, some of whom come to us from surrounding districts. Please find a minute in the coming weeks to welcome them to the Carlsbad Family.
This year your CUTA negotiating team wants the bargaining process to begin quickly. Please take a few minutes to answer this short survey here.
Your input is integral to this process and allows us to prioritize your goals and ensure an outcome all members can support. You will have until October 10th to respond.
As with every year, we ask our members to update their contact information so CUTA can share important information in a timely manner. If you filled out this document last year and have not moved sites or changed your contact information, you don’t need to do anything. If, however, you are a NEW employee or have changed your personal contact information, please take the time to update that information here.
Finally, there will be a school board election this November. With four seats up for election, it is more important than ever to “get out the vote.” Both CUTA and LIUNA endorsed Kathy Rallings for school board. Kathy has eighteen years of experience in education and is an excellent candidate. Janet Neilsen, CUTA’s Organizing chair, is working diligently to help elect Kathy. If you are willing to place a sign in your car or in your yard, walk precincts, work in the phone bank, or volunteer in any other capacity, please let your site rep know or email Janet directly.
I would like to thank you for taking the time to respond to all of our requests. CUTA is only as strong as its members. YOUR work is what makes US work. Remember to like our CUTA Facebook page and check in with our website. Both are regularly updated with the latest news.
Your Voice. Our Union. Our Future.
