A strong union chapter can counter demoralization
In this year’s annual MetLife Survey of the American Teacher, teacher satisfaction has hit a 20-year low point. Teachers nationally are feeling more demoralized than ever, and New York City is no exception.
Building strong union chapters in our schools is one of the best ways to counter this demoralization. Through an organized, active chapter teachers are empowered to work together with colleagues to fight for positive working conditions for ourselves and learning conditions for our students.
Thinking about running for chapter leader or delegate (or know someone who is) but need help with your campaign?
Not sure what building a strong chapter would entail?
Two ways to connect:
Saturday, March 24th, 2pm – At the NYCORE Conference, a workshop entitled Building Your Chapter: How Do You Organize at the School Level?
Friday, March 30, 4:30pm – Happy Hour – Discuss the ins and outs of a successful campaign for Chapter Leader and of building a stronger chapter.
