Monday, April 25, 2022


The UFT election is ongoing. It is a mail-in ballot due Monday, May 9, 2022. Since so many people were away last week, it would seem that a deadline date of April 22, 2022, to request a ballot for the UFT Election is too early. However, April 22 is the date on some UFT election forms as the last day to call for a ballot if you didn't get one. 

On the other hand, the UFT website says the deadline date to request a ballot is today, April 25. Since people were on vacation last week, we believe you can request a ballot today. This is the exact wording on the UFT Website.

Didn't get a ballot?

Any member who has not received a ballot by April 18, or has received an incorrect ballot, should notify the AAA via phone: (800) 218-5524 (Monday - Friday 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. only) or e-mail: Request for ballots must be made promptly – no later than 5 p.m. on Monday, April 25, 2022.

Here is the screenshot:

The deadline day is today, April 25 according to this UFT document. It is way too early in my view as it does not take two weeks to get a piece of mail from Manhattan to the surrounding area and back. The ballots are counted May 10. If the Amercan Arbitration Association says no to you today if you call 800 528-5524 before 5:00 p.m. or email, please get in touch with us at at once. We will do everything we can to make sure you get a ballot.

My school has adopted Culturally Responsive Teaching...They said black and hispanic kids are too dumb to pass the tests honestly so we need to have kids talk about how they feel-as if that will ever help them in life-as if this is what will help them get and hold a job. And we will get rated on this as part of future observations.

It would be nice if UFT/Unity/UFC said something abut this.
