Virtual Convention 2021
The biennial CFT Convention convenes March 26-28

Event CFT Convention

Due to the coronavirus pandemic and public health guidelines, we will be holding CFT Convention 2021 online, as previously scheduled for March 26-28.


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

The Convention elects officers of the CFT including the President, Secretary Treasurer, and 24 Vice Presidents. Delegates will also elect 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.

The CFT is reconfiguring Convention to work in an online format, but you can look forward to the usual general sessions, speakers, and debate on union resolutions.
