Teachers Rally in All Five Boroughs for a Fair Contract

UFT members are currently working under an expired contract. A fair contract would provide a fair wage increase to educators; allow more time to support students with less time spent on unnecessary tasks; ensure a safe school environment; and grant educators adequate prep time, among other important working-condition improvements.

Every day, members of the UFT go above and beyond academics and provide a well-rounded education that includes social-emotional support and a caring, inclusive environment. Students need their educators more than ever, and educators need this contract.

On Wednesday, thousands of teachers and their supporters (including the CLC) in every borough of New York City gathered to deliver a strong message to Mayor Adams: New York City teachers need a fair contract now!
