North Area UTLA Members: Matthew Kogan, Jeff Pott & Anne Zerrien-Lee The best team to serve you as North Area Chair and Directors!

We are three independent voices for constructive change who share a common vision of inclusiveness and union solidarity. We are not beholden to any faction; we know that the only way to make our union strong is to respect our diverse membership and work together with everyone for the common good.

We ask to serve you because we want to work to strengthen our union’s collective ability to champion members’ rights and stand up for public education. It’s time to turn away from destructive internal factionalism and focus on what really matters. We can’t do this alone. We need your help. If you entrust us with your vote, we pledge to work with all of our union brothers and sisters to:

Build union solidarity and recruit chapter chairs for all North Area schools.
Defend and empower all members and all schools, raise pay and boost morale.
Protect your contract rights and benefits from all threats.
Fully staff schools, reduce class size and secure full funding for Arts, Health and Human Services, Libraries, Adult Education, SRLDP, Bilingual Education, Field Trips, and more.
Make sure teachers get the subs they request, and subs get calledwhen requested.
Eliminate excessive high-stakes standardized testing and test prep.
Return Breakfast to cafeterias and halt the theft of instructional time.
Make schools safer and healthier for us and for students.
Hold elected officials accountable for votes that harm our members.
Strengthen organizing ties with families, school communities, and other unions.

“I believe that our power is in our unity. To be successful we must choose strategies based on the needs and strengths of our greatest asset—our members. We are a large and diverse union, and we need to
nd a way to work together. We don’t have to agree, but we do have to work with all members, all chapters and all of 
cers.”

The best team to serve you as North Area Chair and Directors!We don’t just talk about strengthening our union. We work for constructive change.
“We are still under attack from billionaires who see education as a pro
t center instead of a call to public service. We must protect our legal rights and bene
ts while we work to end this nightmare. That’s why I oppose opening our full contract to raids by Deasy and his marauding privatizers. Let’s stand up to the corporate bullies together.”
