- What is LCTA in relationship to CTA and NEA?
LCTA is an affiliate of CTA (California Teachers Association). CTA has over 300,000 members in California. One of CTA's primary objectives is to affect education policy at the state level. For instance, CTA played a crucial role in the passage of Proposition 30 to support K-12 funding. LCTA and CTA are part of NEA (National Education Association) which has over 3 million members in the nation. NEA works to affect education policy at the national level.
What are some of the benefits of being part of CTA and NEA?
There are many benefits to being part of CTA and NEA. You would become eligible for membership in CTA-endorsed credit unions. You could apply for a CTA Visa card through Bank of America. You could earn discounts on car rentals, insurance, theme parks, and travel. You could also attend CTA conferences and training throughout the year, have access to legal services (free 1-hour consultation for employment-related issues, 1/2 hour for other issues), and have Educators Employment Liability Insurance up to $1 million.
What exactly does LCTA do for me?
The primary function of LCTA is to negotiate our collective bargaining agreement with the school district. Among the critical job issues within the legal scope of bargaining are:
- Total compensation (Salary & Health Benefits)
- Hours of work
- Safety issues
- Class size
- Evaluations & Discipline
- Preparation time
- Transfer rights
- Grievance procedures
