Under my leadership we will take our union back from the labor bureaucracy and fight for real improvements for teachers and public education. Over the last decade LAUSD bureaucrats have become dictators and destroyers of our profession with the consent of our union leaders. Our working conditions continue to deteriorate year after year while LAUSD has become the #1 charter authorizer in the nation.
As UTLA president I will democratize our union and organize members to achieve what was not accomplished in the strike:
WIN A TRUE TEACHER'S CONTRACT:
STOP BUDGET MANIPULATION OF LAUSD:
ACTIVATE PARENTS AND STUDENTS:
MY RECORD IN UTLA:
POWER TO THE TEACHERS!
VOTE LLOYD for UTLA President
The Caucus of Rank and File Educators in Los Angeles is a
movement of progressive teachers, psychologists, counselors, itinerant personnel, substitutes and their supporters who are fighting for fundamental change to the system of public education through our union, United Teachers of Los Angeles. We will end privatization and improve public schools for teachers and students.
We believe the rank and file teachers need to be the drivers of this change because our daily work informs us on what should be done. We will transform UTLA into a more democratic, harder fighting union that emphasizes mass political action and the militant defense of its toiling members. In doing this we will no longer prioritize fruitless campaigns for high profile politicians of the two major parties. Instead our focus will be on using our resources to address the daily needs of teachers and to educate and organize the masses to take back their schools.
Collectively we are building a platform that puts the daily needs of public school educators and students first so they can lead a reconstruction of public education and society. CORE-LA will fight for a visionary contract, not the status quo that is leaving too many working class families behind.
We will challenge the current leadership, Union Power, via the electoral process within all parts of the union, including the office of president. Elections begin on February 3rd. We invite like minded educators, parents and students to join us in this Just Cause for the future.
