Our History

Hayward Unified Teacher's Association (HUTA) was officially

organized in 1964. In 1980s there were two Teacher's Unions in Hayward.  HUTA was represented by the California Teachers Association (CTA), and the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) was represented by IFCIO. A vote was taken by members of both unions to have only one union, and they joined together to become Hayward Education Association (HEA).

Our  Philosophy
  • HEA’s philosophy is based on the belief of an educational program founded upon the basic principles and fundamental ideals of American democracy.

 

HEA BELIEVES:

  • That the right to a free public education is fundamental to the success of our society.

  • That all students should have the opportunity for equitable education.

  • That individuals differ in their needs, interests, and abilities and therefore HEA is committed to a curriculum that enables each individual to develop to his/her full potential for a successful life and to become an effective citizen.

  • That competent dedicated teachers are the most vital component in the education process.

  • That the best decisions involve all stake-holders.

  • That a safe and healthful environment is best for teaching and learning.

  • That, in a period of declining enrollment and subsequent revenue loss, reductions should be proportionate between site and district level positions (management and non-management.)

  • That teaching and learning is of equal importance to the physical environment of the school.

  • That every decision made should be most beneficial and least disruptive to our students.

  • That guidance and decision-making should be collaborative between HEA and HUSD.
