Please join us to unwind from a hard week. Meet other UFT members and share your thoughts, problems, ideas, unbelievable stories. We'll be at The Cherry Tree Bar, 65 4th Avenue, between Bergen Street and St.Marks Place, two blocks south of the Atlantic Avenue/Pacific Street stop on the B, D, N, R, 2, 3, 4, and 5 trains. Please reply to this email to RSVP so we know how many tables to reserve. We look forward to seeing you on April 30.

State Restructuring is Union Busting!
On January 21, 2010, the State Education Department announced a list of schools it plans to close or restructure, 34 of which are in NYC. This plan is part of NYS's attempt to win a grant from the Obama Administration's "Race to the Top" funds.
To print leaflets and mail them out takes funds. Please contribute. Make a check out to Teachers for a Just Contract and mail it to TJC, Post Office Box 545, New York, NY 10028
What do a jumbotron, a reframing and a circus all have in common? How did Michael Mulgrew defend Randi Weingarten's speech in which she advocated more managerial scrutiny of teachers, and fewer rights and protections? For the answer to these and other completely unamusing riddles, read Marian Swerdlow's notes from the January 2010 UFT Delegate Assembly. Reply to this email and ask for January D.A. notes.
We are now on Facebook with the name Just Contract. Friend us and check out our great pictures of our actions and events, including some of our recent fundraiser in Upper Manhattan.
