With over 3,800 certificated employees in LBUSD that are part of the Bargaining Unit (comprised of both TALB members and non-member agency-fee payers), we have over 3,600 TALB members that receive tremendous value, perks, and benefits.
TALB members vote to ratify all tentative agreements of the contract between TALB and the district, the district calendars, and any changes to the TALB Bylaws. Non-member agency-fee payers cannot vote on these things. TALB members also vote to elect representatives to our various governing bodies - Rep Council, Board of Directors, CTA State Council, NEA Rep Assembly.
New teachers are not automatically members. If you are not sure if you are a member, contact Veronica Castillo at the TALB office at (562) 426-6433.
