There is a new UFT Caucus that has formed that will be focused on "teacher justice", not social justice, and will act as a real trade union, representing school staff in the New York City public schools. This new and dynamic caucus is call "Solidarity" and will represent the mainstream educators, the disenfranchised ATRs, and those without tenure. This caucus will be a real trade union caucus and will not dilute the message by having a "social justice" plank or spend member money on causes that the union leadership decides, without member input.
The "Solidarity" caucus will represent teachers and school staff. and not muddle their message with tangential issues that have nothing to do with education. If you are a teacher or school staff employee and want what's best for your school then its time to become a member of "Solidarity" who will advocate for the educator and not hugging the Chancellor or supporting marches that demonize fellow union members.
Join the "Solidarity" caucus and belong to a real union that represents school staff and help improve the hostile classroom environment that our present no-accountable union leadership allowed to happen on their watch. Its time that the rank and file have a real union that listens to their concerns and that is "Solidarity".
