New Action statement on AFT tenure proposals

January 15, 2010 am31 8:33 am

On Tuesday AFT President Randi Weingarten spoke to the National Press Club on teacher evaluation and tenure. That evening in reaction UFT President Michael Mulgrew sent an e-mail to UFT Chapter Leaders.

New Action’s statement reads, in part:

New Action/UFT supports Michael Mulgrew’s statement.  “Her proposals would require a climate of collaboration and trust that simply does not exist here.”

Weingarten has shown an unhealthy flexibility over the years to proposals for corporate-style “reform.”

New Action will continue to work with President Mulgrew to continue to protect our rights and our contract.  Now is the time to end corporate-style, anti-teacher, anti-community “reform.”

Read the entire statement at the New Action website.
