Unity is in panic mode over our petition to get a member vote on any significant healthcare changes. Thousands have already signed.
You don't need chapter leader or district rep approval to sign a petition. It is your UFT Constitutional right and US Constitutional right.
It is up to all of us to join the thousands who have already signed the petition demanding a full member vote on major changes to healthcare.
The UFT Constitutional language:
Article V, Section 10
At the written request of one-third (1/3) of the entire membership of the Executive Board or of ten percent (10%) of the membership of this organization, the Executive Board shall submit to a referendum vote any matter except a proposed amendment to this Constitution and matters relating to the admission, suspension or expulsion of members.
