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.

I look forward to speaking with you during my UFT office hours on Wednesdays from 1 to 6 p.m. at 1-212-598-9277. You may also leave a message at this number at any time, and I will return your call as soon as I can. My email address is ccortez@uft.org, if you would like to write to me.

I also welcome you to contact me if you want me to visit your site or attend a related services meeting.

Sincerely,

Cecilia Cortez
Chapter Leader
