Wednesday June 12 Fair Contract For All Rally at City Hall NYC 4-6pm

https://www.facebook.com/events/123585811176249/

Let’s show this mayor and the next one that we are ready to take to the streets for a fair contract. For over four years UFT has been without a contract, meanwhile pensions for new members have eroded, an evaluation system that will take learning time away from our students will be imposed on us, and hundreds of schools have been closed while educators are excessed. The time is now to have OUR voices heard. join with the UFT and municipal union workers from around NYC to protest in front of city hall. All city unions are without a contract, we were asked to sacrifice, we did, now give our city workers the wages we deserve.

MORE will be there, will you? Look for us in our red MORE shirts and follow us on Twitter.com/morecaucusnyc for live updates

There will be two proposals for electing a steering committee to be voted on. A steering committee will ensure that MORE has a vision and decision-making body to keep us as a vital active grassroots movement.
