The UFT represents many different kinds of employees besides teachers, both in the school system and beyond. Department of Education employees participate in their local school-based chapters, but they are also part of union-wide “functional” chapters based on their titles. Our charter school, private sector and other members are also organized in functional chapters. Here you’ll find information specific to your job and your title under the heading for your functional chapter. It’s one more way to be involved in the union and a way to make sure the union is there for you.
