Spring 2021 Functional Chapter Elections

Every three years, UFT functional chapter members have the opportunity to elect their chapter’s leadership. You can nominate yourself or a colleague for chapter leadership positions now.

UFT functional chapters

The chapters were formed to allow these UFT members with common issues and concerns to have a voice. Meet their chapter leaders.
