Election problems–Alleges misuse of union resources–objections had been justified, will treatment some areas, many others had been not justified. Will propose those people be dismissed, Below supervision of committee, UFT elects delegates to conventions. Accordingly elections are staying held. 2022 election committee composed of two caucuses. Complaint submitted about misuse of social media and resources. Adhering to assembly, complaint amended with particulars and suggestions.
With regard to UFT formal social media accounts, counsel members reminded of rules. reccommend Unity pay out sensible sector level for headshots for appearances. Alleged UFT staff utilised FB accounts for political events. Many actions not electioneering. Associates must remedy issues and guide customers on the internet. Allegation without benefit. Union staff members do not forefeit their suitable to marketing campaign in non-UFT forum.
UFT social media accounts used for electioneering, FB and Twitter accounts sharing Unity. Official accounts must not be utilized for electioneering. Need to cease straight away.
UFT online video used on Unity social media. Alleged that it position Unity Logo on movie and positioned it on Instagram. All candidates have equivalent entry. LMRDA prohibits use of union funds for electioneering, but exception when all have equivalent accessibility. Video clip posted on numerous web sites, could be downloaded by anybody, any caucus or prospect. Could have been utilized to contradict. Not prohibited. Similar true of photo from archives. Complaining member also had entry.
Use of head photographs. Claims Unity Caucus utilised headshots from UFT web site. Ruled that campaigns images not union home. Nevertheless, to disspell any notion, Unity ought to shell out fair industry fee.
Mulgrew’s letter in help of Deborah Penney. Alleged violation asking CLs to get signatures. A few associates serve overlapping turns. This 12 months Penney’s convert.

Did not propose candidacy for treasurer.

Appear forward to listening to what AFT has to say.
Sill–Will get a movement.
Suggestion approved unanimously.
Barr--Ballots go out April 8. Essential we have great turnout.
Revision–I questioned for clarification of what we heard, and acquired the subsequent:
1. UFT staff utilised individual Fb Instagram and Twitter accounts for electioneering – not a violation of LMRDA. They do not forfeit their suitable to campaign.
2. UFT social media account – UFT has taken the place that these kinds of “official” UFT social media accounts, no matter whether created by the UFT or an person ought to not be applied for electioneering.
3. UFT online video taken from UFT Instagram and a image from labor archives utilized on UFT social media – other caucuses can do the very same and this style of equal accessibility is not prohibited by LMRDA.
4. Use of headshots from UFT website in marketing campaign products – The Business office of Labor Management Requirements has diluted that one’s campaign use of shots from the locals web page did not violate the legislation. As opposed to the union symbol, photographs are not union home. There is no violation. Nevertheless, to dispel any notion of wrongdoing, Unity should really shell out a sensible sector fee for use of the headshot.
5. Mulgrew sent a letter to chapter leaders in support of Treasurer Debra Penny to be re-elected to the TRS Board – this comes about each and every year for just one of the 3 trustees following the DA voted to endorse her. No mention was designed of her running for Treasurer of the UFT. The criticism ought to be dismissed.
6. Union officials entered faculty structures on college time and applied union conferences and e-mails for distribution, they mixed union and caucus small business
Servia Silva – mentioned that she entered buildings on union time and distributed union flyers. To distribute union flyers on union time would be poor. There is proof she entered the developing but no proof she distributed flyers at that time.
Dana Faciglia – allegations she mention unity caucus in a c
onference and Ms. Faciglia refutes that claim.
Winnie Thompson – ought to not be making use of UFT e mail to conduct caucus small business. This make any difference was dealt with with her directly.
A statement of election apply principles will be reiterated for all staff members.
1. Dismissed 2. Use of formal accounts should really stop, but all those accounts can like or abide by posts unrelated to the election. Doing so is not a violation of LMRDA. 3. Dismissed. 4. Dismissed but Unity will write a check. 5. Dismissed. 6. Specifics over.
