Chapter Chairs

Print this page.

Chapter Chairs, Co-Chairs and Vice Chairs are UTLA's official representatives at school sites and serve as a vital link between the school and the union. Besides keeping members apprised of union activities and policies, Chapter Chairs also defend members' professional rights and help resolve conflicts with administration.




Contract Action Team Members

A Contract Action Team (CAT) is an organizing committee made up of respected educators covering your entire school who take responsibility for communicating with a set group of members at the school to make sure that are they fully informed and engaged in the Union contract campaign. The Contract Action Teams will also help strengthen the union’s school site contract enforcement.
