Learn about MORE this summer: Can YOU imagine a transformed UFT?

Hi All,

If the idea of a different UFT intrigues you. . .if you can imagine a union that stands up to the attacks on us and our students. . . having a say in what OUR union does with OUR dues money. . . . if you want a union that recognizes the racism and inequity in our school system and organizes us to fight against it. . . a union that actually helps you organize at your school when problems arise. . . 

Members from NYCoRE, GEM, Teachers Unite, ICE and TJC (the last two were the caucuses in the UFT already fighting for change) began meeting a couple of years ago with the goal of combining our groups' strengths in order to transform OUR union. This winter MORE, Movement Of Rank and file Educators, was born.
