Educators of NYC kicks off the upcoming UFT Contract Teach-Ins with an important discussion that you don't want to miss -- with union leaders, union activists & YOU!
Join EONYC’s Zoom forum event - The Contract Teach-In Pep Rally on Sunday, January 29th at 7 pm.
Here are some of the questions our panelists and participants will explore:
Ice-Breaker: What do you love about being part of our union and our contract?
What does a fair upcoming contract look like? What does an unfair contract look like?
There are items in any contract that require costing … are there some working conditions that we can demand for this contract that don't really cost the city anything? What are they?
What does saying “no” to an unfair contract mean? Does it mean we strike?
In our teach-ins we will be sharing what actions we should take collectively. Do you believe we are prepared to take meaningful actions? Why or why not?
Some believe that the biggest obstacles for us taking meaningful actions are fear and apathy … How do we overcome fear and apathy in our union?
Wrap-up: In addition to our teach-ins tomorrow (1/30) ... What are some contract-related discussions that should also take place in our chapters and union circles that are impactful?
Featured Panel members - TBA

Thank you, Daniel. Members need to know about their contract. They need to think about their contract. And they need to be organized in case of a need to mobilize for a contract fight. That also means being ready to vote no and push for something better if the contract we’re given ends up not being worth the paper it’s printed on.
