Union Resolutions

Our union’s elected governing body debates and passes resolutions defining the union’s position on many issues. This section archives the resolutions passed by the UFT Delegate Assembly.

The UFT stands in solidarity with the UPS drivers in Queens and pledges to help them in their fight to retain their jobs and to ensure fairness and decent treatment by their employer.

The UFT supports the Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2013 and will work to support its passage in Congress.

In recognition of the fact that May Day is also known as International Workers' Day and has significance to the labor movement, the UFT will fully support and participate in the May Day 2014 Labor Rights, Immigrant Rights and Jobs for All rally.

The UFT calls upon the New York State Department of Education to ensure that the NYSAA is revised so that it better accounts for the cognitive and functional level of students and ensure that the challenges of the NYSAA assessment do not unfairly penalize teachers through the Annual Professional Performance Review (APPR) process.

The UFT supports the proposed legislation known as Avonte’s Law, which would supplement funding for a federal program to give parents of autistic children access to tracking devices and training.

The UFT calls on leaders of the Chicago Public Schools to rescind their threats of punishment against the teachers who joined parents in boycotting the ISAT.

The UFT strongly supports the vigorous efforts of our colleagues in the California Federation of Teachers and the California Teachers Association in defending against the deceitful and dangerous claims of a lawsuit now being heard in a California court which seeks to overturn the state’s laws granting teachers due process and seniority rights.

The UFT commemorates the 60th anniversary of the Brown v. Board of Education ruling and honors its significance to our country’s history through the UFT’s continuing fight for racial, social and economic justice in our schools, our city and our country.

The UFT acknowledges and celebrates this 54th anniversary of our union's founding, and honors the officers and members whose sacrifice over the years have kept the union strong in the face of adversity and made it a model of effective and progressive unionism for all those we serve.

The UFT calls on the DOE to immediately use all lab specialists now in excess and to hire more lab specialists in order that every secondary school in the city has a lab specialist. It also calls on the DOE to ensure that all science teachers and other relevant staff receive lab-safety training.
