on Wisconsin

New Action initiated a bipartisan resolution in support of our colleagues and all public workers in Wisconsin, and linking their struggle to our own. As soon as it is approved, we will publish it.

Without waiting for the resolution, we have proposed several specific steps for the UFT to consider taking:

  • Publicize what’s happening
  • Hold a press conference, and bring out lots of members to it
  • Request a voluntary $5 a member donation for a solidarity fund
  • Make a UFT $$$ contribution to our struggling colleagues
  • Set a “wear red for Wisconsin” day
  • Work with other NYC unions to build a demonstration in support for workers in Wisconsin
