What issues do you feel are most critical for our union?

A workplace where members can do their job with integrity. Walking into work should bring joy and enthusiasm for the new day, but many of us fear administration and retaliation. We need to empower members in order to remind the DOE that we are a partnership and should be treated as such. As partners in education, our voices should be equally heard. When members feel like their voices are heard, more will speak up and speak out against the corrupt policies plaguing our schools.

How would you engage the membership in implementing the changes that are needed in our union?

Right now, social media is our fastest and easiest method of notifying members of upcoming changes.  With leadership that wants to back members, which is the goal of Solidarity, members will be empowered to spread the word of the positive changes that will come. There’s no more under-the-table policies going to be implemented. Members need to shout out wrongdoing from the highest mountain. Members will be engaging one another as team members. As a team, we will change the current climate of education.


VOTE- Nancy Zazulka for UFT VP of Middle Schools


  1. Nancy, how would you go about empowering Chapter Leaders and Delegates to do their jobs in protecting/supporting their members?

    • I suspect that many Chapter Leaders and Delegates have the same fear of retaliation as the rest of us. ALL members need to start having each other’s backs. We are stronger when we stand together. If Chapter Leaders and Delegates feel like members are willing to speak up, they’ll be willing to work harder than they already do. There are too many instances where members ask for change, but don’t back that change. In instances when Chapter Leaders and Delegates aren’t supporting members, the entire school community suffers. When members don’t know where to turn for help, they become burned out. Members that are dissatisfied with the UFT leadership at their school need to come together at the school level to find ways to protect one another. We should all feel like the UFT is our safe place. If members feel misrepresented, there should be an anonymous place we can all go to express our concerns. There should be a timely response to these inquiries to ensure that members know that their voice is being heard and action is taking place.

  2. 53aI only stumbled ascros this side today and I am really glad I did! And thank you so much for triggering this discussion.I am a crafter but I am also a baker in my free time. Recently due to popular demand I set up a part-time baking business. For me the most difficult process was and still is the pricing of my cakes. My prices are probably still not quite on the right level and rather on the low side but it is incredibly challenging finding a fair price structure fair for yourself that is to get paid what your work is worth but also fair to the customer and not to overprice the products.At some point I also considered to sell my cakes via Etsy but very soon I felt that I would never be able to compete with some of the prices and decided not to take this route, I felt like being forced to lower my prices just to be able to sell my products. And I didn’t want to diminish myself and the quality of my products by doing this.I believe there needs to be more education, more help for consumers to understand the quality and work which goes into a handmade product but there also needs to be more support for the artists/crafters selling their products to understand how to price the items not in business management terms but in real figures.
