Why is Solidarity running with United for Change?
For the past 2 UFT election cycles, UFT Solidarity has run independently when our requests to collaborate and work together with other groups have not worked out. The pandemic has led to a resurgence in union activism and has shown us all that the opposition, that is non-Unity groups, have more in common than they have differences. Solidarity is a member-focused caucus and United for Change supports this. It was a no brainers for us. We believe that our union leadership can do better. We believe we need to reclaim our dignity. Let’s hear from some of our members on why they support United for Change.
