UFT elections are coming soon.  ICE is supporting the brand new Movement of Rank and File Educators (MORE).   Julie Cavanagh is the MORE candidate for UFT President; she is an excellent choice to go up against Unity/New Action's Mulgrew.

MORE has nominated me to run on the slate for the High School Executive Board.

Everyone's help is welcome in support of this new MORE caucus that mixes long time activists such as Norm Scott, Kit Wainer (and others from Teachers for a Just Contract), my wife Camille and I along with many well motivated, highly energetic young and veteran educators.

We need about 2,000 more high school votes this time compared to last election to have a good chance to win the high schools and get a true opposition voice back on the UFT Executive Board. Your assistance is necessary if we are to grow a strong alternative to Unity and their New Action allies throughout the UFT.

Below is the MORE announcement for a general meeting on the UFT elections.  Please attend.

It's time to expect MORE from OUR union, one that stands up and fights back! Defend our educators, students, and parents from reform that is motivated by profits not our children's best interests.
