We are very proud to be the fastest growing chapter in the UFT. Several years ago, we had 19,841 paraprofessionals. Now we are more than 25,000 strong.
Our ranks are growing because of the important role that paraprofessionals play in ensuring the needs of all students in our schools are met.
The UFT works hard to support the work you do in schools and in your professional development. It is because of our union that we have a voice in the workplace not only to strengthen our own positions but to make sure our schools and students get the support they need.
On our pages in the Paraprofessionals Chapter section of this website, you will find links to chapter news, events, and a wealth of resources to help meet your needs and answer your questions.
Please make sure to sign up on the website so that you don’t miss important emails from me or from our union.
I am available to answer your questions by email at PCastro@uft.org.
Thank you for your support.
