Walk In for Paid Family Leave

May 27, 2018 — 1 Comment

Do you and your coworkers need paid time to care for a new child or sick or hurt family member?

You need Paid Family Leave! We are putting the pressure on the Department of Education and Mayor DeBlasio to put Paid Family Leave in the next contract for UFT members by showing our solidarity with Walk-Ins at our schools on Friday, June 8, for 30-40 minutes before your school’s start time. Check out the Facebook event where you can RSVP!

What is a walk-in?
Teachers gather 30-40 minutes before work, often wearing union T-shirts or colors. They meet with parents, school employees, and education activists; take pictures; talk to media and elected officials; and then all walk into school in unison.

If you are interested in joining us, start talking to your coworkers, and sign up to be your school’s Liaison with this form. You can also some of the materials we’ve put together in our Paid Family Leave Tool Kit! Check out all our materials here!

We will also be discussing this action at the next MORE General Meeting on Saturday, June 2 from 3:30-6 pm at CUNY Grad Center. Come learn about what organizing is happening in other schools, and get tips on how to organize yours! RSVP here.

Looking forward to organizing with you!

    This is great. However, I think MORE really needs to set up a protest over our evaluation system. A “day of black” would be great publicity to get the word out that New York teachers want a repeal of our evaluation system now.
