UFT Elections – Vote New Action

March 15, 2010 am31 5:16 am

Vote

The ballots are in the mail, or in your mailbox. When you see yours, open it, and vote.

The number of members voting has gone down, and that’s not a good sign. Voting is a form of participation. When we cast a ballot (for any caucus) we show Bloomberg and his chancellor that we care. Do your part.

Vote New Action

When you mark your ballot for New Action you are voting for a progressive caucus. You are voting for a caucus that supports the leadership when they are right. You are voting for a caucus that opposes the leadership when they are wrong.

When you vote New Action, you are voting for the contention that discussion is good. You are voting for the contention that it is worth making proposals, passing or amending resolutions. You are voting for the contention that change is possible, progress is possible, on individual issues. You are voting against knee-jerk opposition (ICE). You are voting against silent acquiescence (Unity).

The New Action approach:  will this help members? will this help organize chapters? It’s the best approach.

    You should be slamming UNITY for the things you are slamming ICE about. They were the ones who had he power to support Thompson. They are the ones in power.
