Jeff Freitas has been re-elected as president of the California Federation of Teachers, the teachers union announced.

Delegates for the state’s second-largest teachers union re-elected Freitas, who has been president for the past four years, to a third two-year term.

“As public education in the U.S. faces unprecedented attacks, it is more important than ever for our educators and classified professionals to come together, united in our commitment to our students and our communities,” Freitas said in a statement, adding that his top priority will be to “address the education staffing crisis.”

CFT is affiliated with the American Federation of Teachers and represents teachers and classified staff at public and private schools and colleges in California.
