EXTRA! EXTRA! UFT elections coming up!!! Want to know more about how our union leaders get elected? Want to have a say, and push our union to be more social justice oriented?

Hello NYCoRE community,

We want to invite everyone to this first major collaboration between NYCoRE and Teachers Unite. A team of folks from the two groups have been working since the fall on a platform for the upcoming UFT wide election, this March. All the leadership positions, including president are up for election. . . .by us, the members.

We felt it was time that we put out a strong statement about what we would like to see the union fight for and prioritize. Attached is the Teachers Unite/NYCoRE platform for a social justice union and the flier for the candidates forum (feel free to disseminate widely). Below is the info for the candidates forum. Come meet some of the folks running for elected positions, learn about the different caucuses that exist in our union and about some of the differences between them.

hope to see you there,

Rosie, Sally and Sam

Teachers Unite and NYCoRE
