At the recent California Federation of Teachers Convention held in March of 2016, Tony-Rector-Cavagnaro was the recipient of the CFT Community College Council Award for Outstanding Local Contribution. Tony has been a faithful member of our local, CCFT, since its inception. He has served as Vice President, a member of the Benefits Committee and the Calendar Committee a co-chair of the Council of Representatives, and as a member of the Union Negotiations Team. As Vice President he launched a successful membership drive for PT faculty. He is on the Negotiations team that obtained faculty raises for the first time since 2008. He is always prepared to inspire faculty to action whether in rallies, media outreach, fliers or pickets. A true Union Stalwart. Thank you Tony!
