Strategic Plan: Alex Caputo-Pearl Message on BFFF

Print this page.

In the 2014-2015 school year, we took collective action, won a long overdue raise, improved working and learning conditions, and extended our health benefits.

As we continue the campaign for the Schools LA Students Deserve, we have an ambitious, but absolutely necessary strategic plan that is built on three foundations:

1. Standing for Fairness
2. Fighting for Resources
3. Building a Stronger UTLA

We can achieve the goals of the strategic plan together – but, first, we must deal with some urgent organizational realities that can no longer be ignored.

We must continue organizing for the Schools LA Students Deserve, and we must face the huge threats in front of us. But both efforts will require a financially strong UTLA, meaning we must address problems with our union’s structure that have been neglected for 45 years.

UTLA President Alex Caputo-Pearl, "I want to personally urge you to vote “yes” on the Build the Future, Fund the Fight initiative. I urge you to sign the public petition in support of the initiative so that we are publicly expressing solidarity with each other, and publicly building momentum across the city."
