Support ATRs and Rally Against High Stakes Testing

May 3, 2015 — 2 Comments
Monday 5:30-6:30pm

UFT Headquarters
Executive Board Meeting

52 Broadway in Manhattan 2nd Floor

Absent Teacher Reserves and Leave Replacement Teachers would appreciate your support. They have been asking for an ATR Chapter to represent our unique interests for a long time now.  We have filed a complaint with the UFT Executive Board concerning the Chapter Election process. ATRs are being compelled to vote and run for office at schools we are just passing through in May and might know nothing about instead of being permitted to vote for our own ATR representatives.

The UFT Executive Board will officially respond to our complaint and we will have an opportunity to voice our support.

    1 Question:

    How do you suppose an ATR can fulfill all duties and responsibilities of a Chapter Leader/Delegate in a building (Chapter and Consultation meetings, SLT, etc.) if, by nature of the position, they’d only be at said building for a few weeks at a time? Moreover, they’d probably serve one cycle at said building ALL YEAR.
    How will that be addressed

    File a complaint with Randi. After all, in the disastrous 2005 contract, she gave up seniority transfers and the right to bump teachers with less seniority. This gave birth to the ATR system. Guess what? The moronic membership ratified the contract.
