Weingarten: When NYSUT fights, NYSUT wins

In an impassioned speech covering an array of initiatives, politics and emotional appeals, American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten shared her thoughts on the past, present and future of our union and the labor movement.

“When NYSUT fights, NYSUT wins. But it takes intention, hard work, and a union. How do we make this work the norm, not the exception? Nationally we’re doing this through #ReadingOpensTheWorld and community schools and more,” said Weingarten.

Weingarten also shared updates on record-setting organizing wins and how our national affiliate’s strength is helping shape the world of politics, bridging gaps between education advocates and elected officials.
