Election information from VTA-PAC
As election 2016 continues, we’d like to remind you that your fellow educators, up and down the state of California, have met and will continue to meet with every candidate, regardless of party affliation, seeking an endorsement from our union.
The Vacaville Teachers Association is also a proud affiliate of the Napa-Solano Central Labor Council and, for this June primary, we held multiple interviews over a one-week period. Our panel consisted of Postal Workers, Machinists, Clerical Workers, Hotel Workers, College Faculty, Carpenters, Insulators, Teachers, School Employees, Food Workers, Iron Workers, Electricians, Teamsters, Plumbers and Steamfitters, Sheet Metal Workers, Cement Masons, Operating Engineers, Bricklayers, and our Service employees; asking the candidates tough questions on issues facing their members.
As a result of these two enforcement interviews, the Vacaville Teachers Association Representative Council met on May 17th and voted to stand with our brothers and sisters in labor by endorsing the following state of issues and candidates for the June Election.
