The Cincinnati Federation of Teachers Collection contains information about this unique local of the American Federation of Teachers. The local reformed in 1964 as the Cincinnati Teachers Union and changed its name to the Cincinnati Federation of Teachers (CFT) in 1971 and immediately began petitioning for a collective bargaining election. By 1976 the CFT won the election and remained the bargaining union for teachers of Cincinnati. In 1979 Tom Mooney became president and took the union on a new course of bargaining reform for all public employees in the city as well as taking the local into new areas of education reform and teacher professionalism.
