Our Alliance Community

Why is UTLA trying to organize Alliance teachers when it has consistently opposed charter schools?

  • FACT: UTLA, with support from national teachers’ umbrella union, the American Federation of Teachers, has been trying to organize Alliance teachers for several years.They have stated so publicly and have funded those efforts with significant resources. Unionizing Alliance would generate more than $450,000 annually from Alliance teachers’ union dues.
