A Message from CTA about the Vergara Verdict (10 June 2014): Vergara Verdict Flawed, Like Lawsuit Itself

Like the Vergara lawsuit itself, today’s ruling is deeply flawed. CTA, CFT and the state of California will appeal. We will appeal on behalf of students and educators. Circumventing the legislative process to strip teachers of their professional rights hurts our students and our schools. This lawsuit has nothing to do with what’s best for kids, but was manufactured by a Silicon Valley millionaire and a corporate PR firm to undermine the teaching profession and push their agenda on our schools. Today’s ruling would make it harder to attract and retain quality teachers in our classrooms and ignores all research that shows experience is a key factor in effective teaching. Read the full blog post.

CUTA Message to Members from Amanda Fanning (21 May 2014):

Dear Colleagues,
The Election committee counted all of the ballots for the ratification vote.  A total of 382 ballots were cast with 98% of CUTA members voting to approve the contract. The tentative agreement has now been ratified by CUTA and will go to the school board for its vote. Thank you to everyone who took the time to come out and vote. Additionally, I would like to thank our bargaining team members for all the hard work they put in during negotiations.

We hope that all families are safe during this fire emergency.  Please refer to the following documents from CTA for emergency relief information. Contact Amanda Fanning if you have any questions or concerns.
