UFT members need to do their homework, a little research and grieve when they feel the contract is being violated. Did your program for next year look very different than your preference sheet? Here’s what you should do.
Go to our contract page, open the contract and search for the word: administratively.
Do this because it will bring you to the pages that tell you the programming guidelines.
For example, if a school administration gives two science teachers 6th and 7th grade split programs, chances are that it would be “administratively” possible for each to have their own grade and reduce planning and/or room assignments.
Click our contract page in the Member Toolbox link in our menu and after reading the related sections file a grievance (our member toolbox also has support on filing a grievance.)
