How does a new PG&E worker like Nilda Garcia become an
organizer traveling the nation to fight for social justice?
Garcia is one of a group of “organizing stewards” that has
ignited passion in her union, the International Brotherhood of
Electrical Workers, Local 1245.
The union explores partnership of community and educators to
launch quality public education campaign
Making schools community hubs is key to the union’s campaign for
quality public education, CFT President Joshua Pechthalt told
participants at the Leadership Conference. Connections with
community members comprise the CFT’s greatest strength and he
encouraged educators to mine those ties.
