Administrative Education Officers and Analysts

From your chapter leader

Denise Crawford
Denise Crawford

Dear Colleagues:

My name is Denise Crawford and I am your chapter leader. I want to thank everyone who participated in the June 2017 chapter election. Together, we make the union work.

I will do everything I can to support and represent you to the best of my ability. As your chapter leader, we must work together to be a strong component of the UFT as well as to fulfill your expectations. I will need your feedback and suggestions, as well as complaints, to get the job done right. Your feedback will help me to better serve as the liaison between your supervisors and our union.

I'm looking forward to working with the union leadership to get up to speed on unionwide issues. Most of you know that we're facing a statewide referendum on the question of whether to hold a constitutional convention in 2018. We're urging you to vote "NO" on Nov. 7, 2017, and to educate your family and friends why they should vote "NO" as well. The state constitution guarantees New Yorkers the right to organize, the right to worker's compensation, the right to a free public education and so much more. Anti-unionists see a constitutional convention as an opportunity to take these rights away from us as well as to change the terms of our guaranteed pensions. We can't let this happen!

You'll be hearing a lot more on this issue in the fall and we'll ask you to take definitive actions. In the meantime, write to your state lawmakers and tell them to do whatever they can to protect the worker's right to organize and negotiate. Unions are only as strong as their members.

If you need to reach me, please email me at Have a good summer.

Who belongs to the bargaining unit?

On July 11, 2016, the UFT and the NYC Department of Education executed an agreement enabling the UFT to become the bargaining representative for more than 450 Administrative Education Analysts and Administrative Education Officers. The criteria for those Administrative Education Analysts and Administrative Education Officers designated for inclusion in the bargaining unit are as follows:

  • Must be pay grade G-1 to G-4.
  • Must not be employed in any of the following locations: Offices of the Chancellor, Deputy Chancellors, Office of General Counsel (Office of Legal Services, Office of Labor Relations, Office of Special Investigation, Office of Equal Opportunity, Office of Auditor General), Division of Human Resources or Division of Budget, Operations and Review.

Administrative Education Analysts and Officers in pay grades G-5 to G-8 are excluded from the bargaining unit. Some other exclusions may apply.

The UFT is aware that you may have questions as to how your new recognition as union-represented employees will affect various aspects of your employment (i.e., work calendar, work hours, salary increases, medical and pension benefits, civil service status and promotional opportunities, to name a few). As of now, there have been no changes, and there is no exact timeline as to when specific changes will take place. We can assure you that, as your bargaining representative, we are actively working on these details.
