Labor Day, Education is Union Work 🍎!
Huntington Beach, Ca-Happy Labor Day from this longtime rank and file public schoolteacher. I’m a proud union member of AFT Local 2317, AFL-CIO, the ABC Federation of Teachers. As well as being an educator myself, as president of OVSD, I’m the employer of over 1,000 school employees including CTA teachers and CSEA classified staff. Times are tough right now, during this pandemic, but I promise things will get better. At this time, I’m grateful to be employed and commit to work protecting jobs here in OVSD. Providing safe working conditions is my number one priority. We look forward to better times to come. This Labor Day, we thank those who have come before us to blaze the trail for workers’ rights.
