EDUCATE! ORGANIZE!! MOBILIZE!!!
Three pillars of The Resistance – providing information on current ed issues, organizing activities around fighting for public education in NYC and beyond and exposing the motives behind the education deformers. We link up with bands of resisters. Nothing will change unless WE ALL GET INVOLVED IN THE STRUGGLE!
What: Serious concerns over recent privatization changes to retiree healthcare along with deficits in health and safety pandemic protocols have galvanized both retirees and in-service UFT Members to rally together outside the UFT’s Shanker Hall to support a resolution ON HEALTH CARE PLAN CHANGES – CURRENT AND FUTURE to be presented inside the first Delegate Assembly of the year..
Parents, students, and community organizations supportive of the resolution will also attend.
When: October 13, 2021, rain or shine
Time: 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Where: 52 Broadway, Manhattan
Who: We are retirees and in-service members of the UFT along with other retirees from NYC's municipal labor unions and parent organizations. We oppose the City's efforts to patch budget deficits on the backs of its current and past employees by cutting healthcare, when multiple avenues exist for the City to create more equitable solutions. The present and coming changes are sure to jeopardize the health and welfare of vulnerable retirees and working members alike.
