I PLEDGE TO VOTE IN THE 2019 UFT EXECUTIVE ELECTION!
In the 2016 UFT Executive Election, less than 30% of school-based educators voted and 46% of the total votes came from retired teachers. I pledge to vote in this year’s Executive Election because I understand the importance of having my voice heard in any and all elections in which I have a vote. I represent my students, fellow teachers, and my profession and want to ensure that my vote is counted in my union.
Organized labor is under attack, I know that a diverse and engaged union is a strong union. Therefore, I will exercise my right to vote this spring in the UFT Executive Election and demonstrate the strength of organized educators.
I am voting because the future for our students and the teaching profession depends on it!
Ballots will be mailed on March 25th and will be counted on April 17th.
