As a member of the CFT, you are part of a vital and active organization committed to upholding educational standards for our students and ensuring the best possible workplace for you. The power of the union stems from collective action. That begins with you, but you don’t stand alone. The CFT stands with you.
Through this benefit of membership, the CFT has helped hundreds of students reach their higher education goals by awarding them Raoul Teilhet Scholarships.
The Labor and Climate Justice Education Committee has produced curricula for students at all levels of education, from preschool coloring books to college and university readings, to union-based new member orientation programs. Here you will find some of our most popular and enduring lessons and materials. You may download pdfs for free and purchase print copies or dvds for a minimal fee.
If you don’t have a union, you already know the boss can do whatever he or she wants. You really don’t know from one day to the next what could happen to your pay, your job, or even your workplace.
Without a union, you leave all of your rights outside when you walk through the door to work. But you – and the people you work with – can change this. It’s your legal right.
In our online store, you can purchase apparel and union swag branded with our new identity CFT – A Union of Educators and Classified Professionals. You may purchase newly designed buttons, hoodies, t-shirts, even onesies for our future union members! You will also find our CFT classics as button packs, stickers, magnets and posters. All union-made, all the time!
Americans are eager to support workers, but more than 80 percent say they don’t know which products are union-made. Finding union products can be difficult because few are labeled as such. And now that you can find anything online, it takes extra effort to support fellow workers by buying union-made items.
