We need a UFT contract that keeps up with wage growth!

The November 2019 economic data shows what is widely described as sluggish wage growth. Unfortunately for NYC educators, it also shows that average wages in the United States are also growing faster than the salaries of UFT members. While the 2019 UFT contract provides average annual salary increases of approximately 2.1%, US wage growth has been approximately 3% over the past year, hitting 3.1% in November 2019. Clearly we need a new union leadership with a bolder contract strategy. Contact MORE and find out how you can help us turn our union around!
