2017 Convention PrideofUnion

EC/TK-12 Council sponsors annual Pride of the Union Awards

During the annual CFT Convention the EC/TK-12 Council presents its popular Pride of the Union Awards. The awards offer a wonderful way to honor active members in local unions. The EC/TK-12 Council encourages local unions to enter and encourages discussion of these awards among local executive boards.

There are five categories in the Pride of the Union Awards. Locals may submit one nomination per category. The 2017 deadline for nominations is Tuesday, February 28.

Union Activism – This will be awarded to a CFT local that has demonstrated strong leadership in the area of teacher defense, contract innovation and negotiations, grassroots membership involvement, strong infrastructure, and general excellence.

Educational Issues – The local may nominate an individual, a program or a school for such accomplishments as innovative curriculum, exemplary instructional techniques, an outstanding education program, restructuring and reform successes, or effective professional development.

Dedicated Unionist – For that unsung hero in the local who has demonstrated dogged devotion to union principles and union grunt work over the long haul.

Emerging Union Leadership – We are looking for that outstanding new union leader in the local.

Political Involvement – This will go to a local that has demonstrated success in the areas of legislative issues, labor council and coalition involvement, COPE membership, and local elections.
