On February 4, over 200 people attended  State of the Union ā€“ Part 1, featuring 15 workshops focusing on issues facing the UFT in the age of ed deform.

That was only the beginning.
Join us on March 10 to help plan the next steps in moving our union forward, and unite those who came together on February 4th into a common organization.

As the UFT and NYSUT agree to an evaluation system that requires 40% of evaluations to be based on state or local high stakes tests, mandates unannounced observations, and allows for an independent appeal on only 13% of first time ineffective ratings, it becomes even more urgent to discuss how we can build a movement in our union to fight for an alternative to the concessionary approach.

We are asking for a $5-$10 contribution at the door to pay for expenses incurred for this event. 
Childcare available upon email request before Thursday 3/8 

For more info, find us on Facebook: State of the Union or email sotuuft@gmail.com

Flyer for distribution at your school attached (reply for a lighter version for less toner use).
