Please check out our events calendar at more.nationbuilder.com/calendar

  • Distribute Our Newsletter! – This is the most essential thing every member should do to build our caucus.  The newsletter is how we raise our collective voice and recruit new activists. MORE members should distribute MORE newsletters to all UFT members in their school mailboxes and try to make contacts at nearby schools as well. Download our recent copy here

  • Charter-school co-location hearings – Join us as we stand together with parents, students, and fellow UFTers against the privatization of our schools and defend public schools that serve the local community. We stand against the proliferation of charter schools that crowd out district schools and do not serve all our children  Charters are are often run by corporations as for-profits.

  • Local Educator Support – MORE is supporting UFT members in all boroughs who need assistance in their schools, are under attack from bad administrators, or just want to work on building a stronger UFT. Meet MORE after work, during lunch, or at a happy hour. To set up a local meeting in your neighborhood or district with our experienced chapter leaders- contact our local coordinators – Click here for more details

  • ATRs – Contact us so we can put you in touch with a confidential ATR support group. Work with us to fight for full union representation, an ATR chapter with an elected Chapter Leader and Delegates.

  • Chapter Leader/Delegates Group – This group is involved in chapter building, answering contract questions, assisting with grievances, and coordinating MORE’s presence at the monthly delegate assembly. Chapter Leaders and Delegates are welcome to join our email support list by emailing chapterleadermeetup+subscribe@googlegroups.com.

  • MORE Election Committee – MORE is running in the Spring 2015 chapter leader and delegate elections, and gearing up for a run for union office in 2016. Interested in running or know someone who is? Let us know.

  • New Teacher Support Group – MORE has a special committee dedicated to supporting new teachers and hosting social and educational events introducing new teachers to the benefits of teacher unions. Need advice? Want to join? Contact us!

  • Tenure – We are working closely with Stronger Together (a NYSUT statewide caucus) and the National Social Justice Network made up of activists, caucuses and AFT/NEA locals from around the country. Look for our campaign to push the union leadership to mobilize in defense of due process. Share our press release here
