In the last large school district in the state where educators are not part of a union, school psychologists and mental health support providers (MHSPs) have just made history by voting to join the Association of Clovis Educators/CTA/NEA, the first ever for certificated educators in the district.
The Public Employment Relations Board (PERB) announced the vote count at PERB headquarters in Sacramento today. Forty-nine of the 71 voters, or 69 percent, voted for ACE/CTA/NEA, while 16 voters, or 23 percent, voted for a competing union. Only six voters, or seven percent, voted for no union. Eighty-one school psychologists were eligible to vote.
