CTA is the voice of 325,000 educators in California’s public schools and colleges. All together – and throughout our history – we have worked to improve the conditions of teaching and learning in California. Our members include teachers, counselors, psychologists, librarians, Education Support Professionals, and other non-supervisory certificated personnel in our public schools and colleges.

The National Education Association (NEA), the nation's largest professional employee organization, is committed to advancing the cause of public education. NEA's 3 million members work at every level of education—from pre-school to university graduate programs. NEA has affiliate organizations in every state and in more than 14,000 communities across the United States.

At the Labor Council, we believe that ALL workers deserve a voice on the job. Together, we fight for higher wages and quality healthcare, housing that is affordable and equal pay for equal work. We represent workers from a wide variety of industries and professions who want a seat at the negotiating table and in the halls of power.
