Updated On: Feb 23, 2019
Dear UPM Members
At a General Membership Meeting on February 20, 2019, UPM members voted 85 to 68 to recall all nine (9) members of the Executive Council and UPM Officers. Representatives from our affiliates, the California Federation of Teachers (CFT) and the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) were present at the meeting and during the vote count.
We are in regular and ongoing contact with AFT and CFT on all issues related to union business and as members you should continue to contact the union office with any questions you have regarding the decision made by the membership on February 20. We will work with AFT and CFT to provide answers to your questions and provide regular updates on progress made in electing new local union officers.
If you encounter any issues with your employment including any contract violations, you should contact the office immediately so that we can connect you to the CFT field representative assigned to assist with these issues during this interim period.
