Delegates had a lot to celebrate as they convened for the CFT’s
100th Anniversary celebration in March.
The state’s largest local union, United Teachers Los Angeles, had
held a wildly successful strike less than two months earlier. And
the union’s block of classified employee members were set to
begin the CFT’s second century with their highest union profile
Over the next three days, the delegates would vote to rebrand the
Federation to highlight their role, and to elect a classified
employee to the union’s second-highest post.
