Crystal Ogir
Supervisor of Nurses and Therapists

Dear Colleagues,

I welcome you to the Nurse, Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy Supervisors section of the UFT website. Collectively, we provide a vital service in helping to manage nursing and related OT and PT mandated services to many New York City students. We are a small chapter, and I work diligently to help make our needs understood by our union. At the same time, I want to encourage your participation in unionwide functions and events that we share with our larger UFT family. We should all be proud to be part of such a strong union as the UFT!

In this section of the website, you'll find information related to our chapter and our work, several links to useful resources and information on upcoming UFT events.

I look forward to getting to know each of you. I am here to answer questions, discuss pertinent work issues and help you to know your rights and make informed decisions. I also urge you to share your ideas to update the information provided on this website. You can contact me anytime by email at cogir@uft.org.

During the summer, if you need assistance or have questions, please contact your UFT borough office.

Our chapter headquarters are at the central UFT building located at 52 Broadway, New York, NY, on the 16th floor. The office telephone number is 212-598-7775. A chapter representative is available to take your calls on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday between the hours of 4 and 6 p.m.

Sincerely,

Crystal Ogir
Chapter Leader
