Join MORE at the Labor Day Parade

Saturday, September 8th, 10 AM

Be part of the Chicago Solidarity Contingent to demonstrate your support for our brothers and sisters in Chicago who may be going out on strike on September 10th.

Meet-up at the NE corner of 6th Ave & 45th Street
We will join the UFT Contingent at  10:45 am
Our Brand New Red MORE T-Shirts will be for sale.
Buy one while supplies last! ($20)
And please wear RED to the parade in solidarity with Chicago Teachers
Out working conditions are our students' learning conditions

Say no to test-based evaluations!

Download and distribute this petition at your school to call for a vote on the new evaluation scheme. 

In February, the UFT agreed to a new framework that will base 25-40% of our future evaluations on standardized test scores.

The union will be negotiating the final details with the city over the fall and winter, but the membership deserves a discussion and a vote on the agreement.

MORE and Labor Notes present:

Secrets of a Successful Organizer

A training for new chapter leaders, new delegates, and all teachers who want to organize in their schools.
MORE is joining forces with Labor Notes, a publication and organizing project focused on “putting the movement back in the labor movement” for a 
workshop on how to engage members and build rank-and-file power in your school.
