WHY SVFT?

MEMBERSHIP​

 

If you’re a teacher in the Salinas Union High School District, you’re better off in SVFT. Reach out to your site leadership to receive your Membership Forms and all the benefits that come with being a part of SVFT!

 

The best bargaining tool we have to negotiate good contracts for members is 100% membership. Joining = better contracts!

Collective strength also means we can do a better job of making sure our members’ rights are respected, and that everyone is treated fairly.

Because we believe that members have the right to be judged based on their behavior as human beings, on their relations to their fellow human beings, and on their conduct as union members, we fight against racism, sexism, ageism, homophobia, and discrimination based on job classifications.

We lobby the local school board, other local elected officials, state legislators, and the United States Government’s elected officials to act in ways that benefit our working conditions, our students’ learning conditions, and a fair and just society where everyone has an equal opportunity to achieve to their greatest potential.

You get to vote in union elections for representation and contract ratification votes.

Plus, you get access to lots of great benefits, like the ones listed below:
