Raquel Sepulveda,
Hearing Education Services

Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to our chapter’s section of the UFT website. I hope that you will check this page periodically to view the latest newsletter, read important chapter updates and find additional pertinent information. Among the materials we have on our web pages is a link to the Cascade seniority agreement that outlines seniority rules and procedures for HES members.

If you need to reach me, my email address is rsepulveda@uft.org. If you would like me to visit your work site or attend a related services meeting, I’d be happy to arrange that as well.

Sincerely,

Raquel Sepulveda
Chapter Leader
