7/17 GSCFTers: Check your emails for information we've sent out about the right wing think tank, Freedom Foundation, that is trying to get our personal information from SCCS. If you didn't receive my email, contact me. Also, look at the News Page to see updates on our AFT Convention.

The Greater Santa Cruz Federation of Teachers represents our members in employment issues, we advocate for public education and we are involved in our community.

Here we are at the Santa Cruz Pride Parade to say that "All Children and Families are Welcome and Safe in Our Schools!"

How We Work:

Each of our school sites votes on one or more site representatives. Site representatives meet monthly. The Site Representatives' Council is the highest decision making body for our union. We have five elected officers: a President, an Elementary Vice President, Secondary Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. We are a local affiliate of the California Federation of Teachers, and American Federation of Teachers.

Get Involved

Please talk to your site representative and/or contact us to get more involved. This is OUR Union.  Email: President, Casey Carlson: ccarlson@gscftunion.org
