United for Summit Teachers & Students
We are the teachers union for Summit Public Schools educators in California.
We are so excited to share that on May 10, 2022, we reached a tentative agreement on our collective bargaining agreement! Since then, both our members and Summit’s Board of Directors have ratified our contract.
Our journey to this collective bargaining agreement (CBA) has been long and difficult — the closure of Rainier, fighting the pay freeze, and the pandemic — were just a few of the obstacles we faced.
Despite high teacher turnover, we were able to keep our union going because new teachers quickly saw both the things that needed improvement and the potential of our schools. We fought for our union and our contract for over three years motivated by our love for our students and our school communities. While we didn’t win everything we wanted or deserved, we are extremely proud of this CBA and extremely grateful for all of the community support and solidarity. Both our bargaining team and site reps enthusiastically recommended voting YES to ratify our agreement.
This contract is a recognition of teacher voice by Summit Management. We hope it allows us to turn a new page in our relationship and that we can work productively and collaboratively to continue to improve our schools.
