MORE summer series event Thursday Plus CL/Del Training Sept. 19

Learn about MORE, meet others who are down for a different UFT...
If you think the UFT/Unity Caucus leadership have taken us in the wrong direction by agreeing to so much of ed deform (they try to coat themselves in Teflon like it is all Bloomberg's and Klein's fault), it is time to take action to help create an alternative. Other efforts in the past have not taken hold and unless more people get involved there is a danger that we end up right back where we started in trying to build MORE. If the alternative to Unity is just as top down we will get nowhere. So this is YOUR chance to get involved in steering MORE to be an open and democratic organization with widespread representation in the schools. So stop bitchin' and start buildin'.

Hi all, Please spread the word. Face book, twitter, all your teacher friends. And please come yourselves, this is how we build community and a new UFT!

Labor Notes, a publication for rank and file labor activists that has been around for more than 30 years, is teaming up with MORE to help provide training for UFT activists interested in trying to build membership activism in the schools. At our workshop on the 19th we'll discuss ways in which we can identify potential activists and leaders within our schools, figure out how to approach and activate them, and discuss what kinds of issues are likely to interest our co-workers.
Join us on the 19th to meet experienced activists from other unions and from among MORE's deep bench of rank and file
Stay tuned for details on location and time (most likely starting 4:30-5 PM).
