UFT elections, Spring 2016.

Join MORE-UFT (Movement of Rank and File Educators) to chart a new course for the UFT. A MORE leadership of the UFT will mobilize members, parents and allies to defend our working conditions and stop the transformation of schools into test-prep factories.

 

A fair contract in 2018. Under Mulgrew/Unity, our salaries don’t keep up with inflation. We won’t even get our 2009 raises until 2020. A MORE-UFT leadership will mobilize members and allies to put real pressure on the city for a better, fair contract in 2018.

Support Opt Out! Mulgrew and Unity refuse to support the movement of parents who are “opting out” of the use of standardized tests to evaluate students and teachers.  MORE Chapter Leaders and members are already working with parents to spread the word about “opting out.” A MORE-UFT leadership will offer full support to “Opt Out.”  

Rebuild our union from the bottom up! Under Mulgrew/Unity, members often face abusive administrators and violations of the contract alone. Some schools don’t even have functioning chapters. MORE already brings UFT members together across the city to provide mutual support, training, and education to address these issues. A MORE-UFT leadership will help members transform the union into a force in every school that can oppose abusive supervisors and contract violations.

What can I do?

  • Become a dues-paying MORE-UFT member for only $10 for the year.
  • Distribute MORE-UFT literature in your school.
  • Contact us to have a happy hour near your school or come to one of the ones we already have planned (see below.)
  • Become part of a flyering team in your school’s neighborhood.
  • Promote MORE-UFT by following and sharing us on Facebook and Twitter.
  • If you agree with our Mission, run for union office on our slate! There are literally hundreds of positions, large and small.
  • Join our social media, membership, literature, or organizing committees
