Candidate Statement: David Price, MORE candidate for at-large seat in the 2019 UFT elections

Our union needs to build power and exercise it. We are one of the largest union locals in the country and should be capable of fighting back against the powers that be, those who would squeeze us in the interest of tax “incentives” for the wealthy. Instead, for too long UFT leadership has acted like […]

Candidate Interview: Cayden Betzig, running for at-large seat in the UFT 2019 elections

Why are you running in the 2019 UFT elections? I am running because UFT members deserve a union led by ourselves, a union responsive to the needs of membership, especially young untenured teachers. Why are the 2019 UFT elections important? UFT members deserve a union run for us, by us, not by bureaucrats. NYC parents, […]

Candidate Statement: Leia Petty, MORE nominee for Assistant Secretary of the UFT

I have been a guidance counselor for ten years. I have always believed in the power and promise of public education, a promise gone unfulfilled for so many.

Candidate Statement: John Antush, MORE nominee for Vice President of High Schools

I’m proud to be a UFT member, but we should not sit back and depend on top UFT officials or Mayor De Blasio to resolve problems that affect us as educators. As UFT rank-and-file members, and as working people, we have to organize from the bottom-up for the conditions that would make safe, culturally-relevant, meaningful […]

My name is Aixa Rodriguez. I am an ESL teacher and I am running on the MORE-UFT slate for Vice President for Education-At-Large. I’m running in the 2019 UFT elections because MORE has the values and the work ethic that most closely match mine. When I heard who was running on the MORE-UFT slate, I […]

Candidate Statement: Dermott Myrie, MORE nominee for UFT President

There is a disconnect between UFT leadership and rank and file membership. As a result, there is a void and that void has to be filled at a time when unions and labor movements are being attacked and destroyed by unfriendly forces: right wingers, ed deformers, and many of the 1% who have accumulated most […]
