By the time I left just before 10PM, you couldn't squeeze into the backyard. I staggered out after 2 drinks from the gin and tonic machine - I think I'm hooked.
Bruce Markens, the only non-Unity district rep (Manhattan High Schools) ever elected for a decade - and the reason Randi abolished district rep elections in 2002 - was there with Bernie Sanders buttons - I bought one even though I am very unhappy with Bernie on ed deform.
I'm just about heading over to the MORE meeting where the deal with New Action will be presented and a MORE process for choosing candidates and setting up an election campaign will be on the agenda.
I have been proposing that MORE have its high school, middle school and elementary school people set up committees to choose candidates, focus on issues and run campaigns in their divisions. And stay local and build infrastructure that will last beyond the election.
MORE is planning other local events. A Bronx and Brooklyn event next Friday. Come on down.
Brooklyn Happy Hour
MORE will be challenging Michael Mulgrew and his Unity caucus in the 2016 UFT officer elections. We want to hear from you, what are the issues in your school? How can we change our union for the better?
We will also have experienced UFT chapter leaders available to answer your questions on the new contract, evaluations, testing, lesson plans, dealing with bad administrators or any other UFT questions you may have.
Come have some drinks and meet educators from nearby schools!
Bronx/Uptown educators, come to a MORE Back to School Party!
-Meet other UFT chapter organizers for food, drink and fun
-Discuss how to organize and defend the UFT contract in your school
-Help build a movement demand a more just educational system
