The Caucus of Working Educators is an organization of PFT members who believe in a stronger union to win the public schools that we deserve.

A movement of educators has swept the nation- it’s Philly’s turn!

It's Time for a Stronger Union

The Schools Our Students, Families, & Educators Deserve:

Lower Class Sizes for Better Learning

We need lower class size limits across all areas so that students can get the support they need, and real mechanisms to enforce these caps.

Healthy School Buildings

We need fully-functional buildings that are free and remediated from all lead, asbestos, mold, and pests, and with proper heating and cooling systems.

Wage Increases for ALL Educators

Paraprofessionals, Support Staff, Teachers, Related Service Providers, and all other school staff deserve to be paid fairly and equitably for the hard work we do every day.

Libraries, Art, Music, & PE

We need to invest in educating the whole child by ensuring that all students have access to the arts, music, and physical education.

Recruit & Retain Educators of Color

We need strong action to recruit, support, and retain teachers of color. We need paid mentorship programs for veteran teachers of color to support new teachers.

No More Concessions & Healthcare Losses

We need to stop accepting concessions and increased healthcare costs, and defend the benefits that we deserve.

End Understaffing & Contracting-Out

Every year more PFT staff are cut and replaced with non-union, contract employees. We must stop the understaffing and privatization of our schools.

It's Time to Win the Schools We Deserve

It's Philly's Turn!
