Contract Action Team

What is CAT?

CAT stands for the Contract Action Team—a campus-based, district-wide organizing committee comprised of member activists. CAT members coordinate activities and programs with the Organizing Department to advance the Vision Statement of AFT 1521. CAT is a critical communication structure for our mobilizing efforts to organize and build faculty and student power!
