Protecting Pensions and Collective Bargaining Rights of Public Charter School Educators

 

Educators at nine public charter schools have been excluded from the CalPERS returement system, and CTA is proposing a legislative fix. CTA-sponsored AB 1531 by Ed Chau (D-Monterey Park) would ensure that employees of public charter schools are covered by the state's public pension systems and by collective bargaining law. While the first provision would help protect their retirements, the second would ensure that they are protected by laws that give voice to educators. These protections are vital to helping public schools – charter or regular – attract and keep the highly qualified educators our students need.

The measure was introduced mid-January and could be heard near the end of March in the Assembly Education Committee.
