Hey ALAA folks, I already shared this w/ 1199ers, but thought some you might also be interested to know about the Movement of Rank and File Educators, a social justice caucus running in the United Federation of Teachers elections.  They are modeled after the caucus that took over the Chicago teachers union that led a very successful (and very militant and mobilized) strike last Fall.  This is the kind of organizing the labor movement needs if it’s going to reverse the attack on working people in this country.

Check out their campaign video for yourself.  And PLEASE pass it on to any teachers you know (friends, family, your kids teachers, etc). They are getting their ballots in the mail this week and they should at least know that they have an option in this year’s election and who these folks are.

Thanks!
