Who we are and why the creation of the Solidarity Caucus of the UFT?

 

Simply put, those who founded, and are joining, the Solidarity Caucus of the United Federation of Teachers (UFT), want to build a stronger union. A union that is the backbone and muscle of its membership. Since a large majority of UFT members are educators, the stakes are very high.

The foundation of every state is the education of its youth.” – Diogenes

Solidarity Caucus plans on using the talents, skills, advanced education, training, experience, savvy, political know-how, technological expertise, social media access, and the effective strength of our collective voices, minds, and desire for justice and integrity in our schools, to take back the power that we’ve, unwittingly, given away to those who have been and continue to attack our profession and education system.

We are committed:

  • To advocate for all members and improve our professions
  • To provide oversight and support to members harassed and struggling under hostile work conditions
  • To expose corruption and abuses that negatively affect member working conditions and therefore our communities
  • To advance our union whilst embracing these challenges

It’s time to TAKE ACTION and demand the RESPECT that our members deserve and earn every day in their profession.

The newly-formed UFT Solidarity Caucus is comprised of active in-service members, activist retired members, as well as discontinued former members. We will bring the union’s focus back to its members whilst building partnerships with the communities.

By improving the working conditions of the union members, who serve our communities, we believe we can make the positive changes our school system so desperately needs. We will do this together. We will do this in solidarity.

We are eager to work with any and all existing groups that are also looking to augment and improve the education system. Our members are on the frontline and we are here to support them.

We are here for you – we stand with you – and we will fight for you.

Consider joining and/or supporting.

 

Sincerely,

UFT Solidarity Caucuses

  1. Thank you very much Aja. Nice to see you here. And elle s’ennuie, thank you too. And alo. I’m trying so hard to not use ecoxamatiln points (!) Ya I wanted to do a new pocket. It’s the buttons that make me crazy, they are really nice. I think it’s ok if it’s showing wear especially nice green stuff. They do clean up pretty well and can take a pretty heavy duty cleaning. I love to hear bag updates! I think the totes you have of mine may have the best life of any that have gone out into the wilds of the world. I can’t even believe all the endless- here is a butterfly, here are some deer, here are flower and flowers and more flowers, oh here is an abandoned castle. Bit jealous!
