UFT members have a choice for new officers, and MORE believes that this choice can make a difference. The Movement of Rank and File Educators believes the teachers union can and should be the fighting force to defend public education for all students. In the classroom we will fight for small class sizes, rich curriculum, push back on the testing regime and an end of harassment and incessant paperwork. Outside the classroom we will demand a fair contract and democratic governance of our schools instead of simply waiting for a new mayor. We will partner with parents, communities and other unions because we understand that our working conditions are our students’ learning conditions, and together we can make a difference.
We urge you and all UFT members you know to vote for a positive leadership for our UFT. In past elections less than a quarter of the active UFT membership voted for their leadership. Please spread the word to Get Out the Vote and vote in a positive alternative leadership.
Demand MORE from the UFT.
No more waiting, no more concessions to billionaire mayors and his corporate reform agenda that ignores the needs of students, teachers and communities. Together let’s build a movement to fight for the quality public education that every students deserves!
“In the last ten years, in a departure from the roots of our union’s founding, the leadership has failed to organize and mobilize the membership at the time we have needed their leadership the most. The tidal wave of unprecedented attacks on our profession, our schools and our children will not stop with a new mayor. It is time for change. It is time we demand MORE from our union.” -Julie Cavanagh, MORE’s candidate for UFT president
