UFT Contract Town Hall - Wed, 6/21 at 7:30 PM: Why Voting 'No' Gets Us a Better Contract
UFT Executive Board high school members will share a rank and file vision for a better UFT contract. Learn more about the new proposed tentative agreement -- its perks and its drawbacks.
Join the UFT Executive Board high school teacher member panel, this Wednesday evening, June 21st, at 7:30 pm for a UFT contract town hall.
At this important meeting, you’ll learn more about the newly proposed tentative contract. Our panel will also share a rank and file vision and in-classroom perspectives from union members, like you, fighting for a better contract.
There is a lot to talk about. In 2018, major healthcare givebacks were not fully disclosed. Simply put, we can’t afford to be fooled again. It’s why we all need to really look at what is at stake.
We’ll discuss the perks found in this 2023 tentative agreement but also the major drawbacks, such as — the lasting impact of sub-inflation raises, implicit major healthcare givebacks, low wages for paraprofessionals and occupational & physical therapists, more micromanagement, no clear plan for virtual schools & much, much more.
So, what happens if we vote this TA down for a better contract? Join us to find out.
