Member-driven committees examine educational issues

Serving on a union committee is a great way to share your expertise and further your profession. The standing committees of the CFT work on areas of interest to educators, ranging from special education to labor education. The committees meet several times a year, usually on Saturdays, and the CFT covers the cost of travel expenses.

Please note: Due the COVID-19 pandemic, we are unable to take photos in-person for the 2021-23 committee term  The photos shown here are from the previous term.


Attention High School Teachers: New law protects working students
AB 800 signed into law by Gavin Newsom on September 30, 2023

AB 800 (Ortega), signed into law by Gavin Newsom on September 30, 2023, is an important
breakthrough for the protection of your students on the job against injury, wage theft and other violations of their rights.

AB 800 mandates a week of “appropriate educational exercises” for all 11th and 12th grade students in the state (public and charter) “that make pupils aware of the role that the labor movement has played in shaping California and the United States.”
