Join the fight for the contract we deserve

Fair contract now gfx - 3 Up

UFT members are currently working under an expired contract for the first time since 2014. But a time when New York City has unprecedented financial reserves, the mayor has called upon his agencies to slash their budgets. 

Our 500-member negotiating committee has been meeting since March. The mayor's reluctance to bargain is a slap in the face to all the city workers who helped our city get through the pandemic.

Join the fight to help us win the contract we deserve.
