Convention
CFT Convention convenes online March 26-27

Due to the coronavirus pandemic and public health guidelines, we will be holding CFT Convention 2021 online March 26-27. Some events will be held in the days preceding the Convention.

The Convention is the Federation’s highest governance body, where delegates shape union policy and positions on issues affecting all members. The now biennial Convention is open to all CFT members, but only elected delegates can vote.

The Convention also elects officers of the CFT including the President, Secretary Treasurer and 24 Vice Presidents, plus delegates to the AFT Convention and the California Labor Federation Convention. The CFT division councils meet and constituent local unions will elect officers of each division.
