Say no to UFT support of the IDC!

  • 52 Broadway New York, NY 10004-1613 (map)

The IDC's power-sharing arrangement with the state senate Republicans has kept New York schools from getting millions of dollars that they are owed. Yet the head of the UFT, the union that represents public school teachers, is supporting the IDC and used his leverage to push Democratic leaders into endorsing the IDC as well. 

Remember, all eight IDC members walked out the last time the Senate voted on restoring school funding. And the IDC has benefitted greatly from donations from charter school supporters. There is no reason to believe they have the best interests of public schools at heart. 

Join us in letting the UFT leadership know what we think of their support of the IDC!
