JFT Update: October 24th

JFT Update

October 24, 2022

JP Schools Employee Townhall

JP Schools is hosting an Employee Townhall Meeting at Boudreaux Elementary School, 950 Behrman Hwy in Terrytown from 6:00 PM-7:30 PM on Tuesday, October 25, 2022. The Superintendent will be taking questions from employees. We know one of the greatest concerns is working conditions (overworked, redundant paperwork, 30-page lesson plans, AIM Pathways, subbing, Paraeducators teaching classes). If you are able to attend, please wear your JFT shirt in solidarity with our Union. It’s the U and I in UNION that makes us STRONG.

The JFT General Membership Meeting will be at Plumbers and Steamfitters Local 60, 3515 N. Interstate 10 Service Road, West at 6PM on Thursday, October 27th. LFT President Larry Carter and JFT Counsel Larry Samuel will be in attendance. We will be nominating delegates for the 58th Annual LFT Convention held in Lafayette from November 19-21, 2022. If you would like to be a delegate, please email Lauren Marino at
