The Education Coalition for Health Care Reform
CFT participates in labor-management watchdog group

By Marty Hittelman, CFT Senior Vice President

The CFT and other education labor groups have joined with administrative and school board organizations in the Education Coalition for Health Care Reform to find a way to stabilize costs while increasing quality. The group is determined to address the systemic reasons for high cost and low-quality health care.

We are committed to shifting from just paying higher prices to joint action against industry price gouging and poor-quality health care. CFT Field Representative Greg Eddy and I have been representing the CFT at these joint labor-management meetings.
