Welcome to the Laborhood!
CTA and CCA have joined a coalition of labor unions through the Alliance for a Better California to launch The Laborhood, a place where union and non-union workers can share stories, learn about the challenges that we face every day – and how we can make change for the better. We are inspired every day by what workers are able to accomplish through collective bargaining and having a voice on the job. We want all workers to be treated fairly and with all the rights that every worker is entitled to. The Laborhood is a way to communicate that change is possible!
So please visit The Laborhood, and download the LaborHood app for your iphone or android! It's also on Facebook and Twitter: @thelaborhood
MOOCs - Teaching Millions or Making Millions?
With their video, Teaching Millions or Making Millions? faculty organizers of the national Campaign for the Future of Higher Education have raised the level of discourse across the country when it comes to the pervasiveness of MOOCs in our midst. CFHE's five-minute video explains it all 
Supporting Campus Equity
Campus equity is more than a week, it’s a movement. Contingent or adjunct faculty members teach the majority of postsecondary students in America—and they often do so under near-impossible working conditions. CCA, CTA and NEA call on all of their members to work together to change those conditions for the benefit of faculty and students. San Joaquin Delta College faculty (from left) Marcos Contreras, Wes Swanson, Cirian Villavicencio and Ed Torres display their support for Campus Equity. You can show your support by displaying a Campus Equity poster designed by CCA member Denise Johnson. Also check out NEA's poster that asks a thought-provoking question.
