An Open Letter to Randi Weingarten, President of the United Federation of Techers

Ms. Randi Weingarten, President
United Federation of Teachers

New York, NY 10004

Dear Ms. Weingarten:

I am an associate professor at Brooklyn College, a campus of the City University of New York (CUNY). At present, the Professional Staff Congress, a NYSUT unit, represents the CUNY faculty. The Professional Staff Congress, in part for reasons of lack of bargaining power and in part for reasons of poor leadership has been unable to bargain effectively with the State and City of New York.

I wanted to inquire if the UFT would consider an unfriendly takeover of the PSC's unit based on a unit decertification/certificaton. Alternatively, would you consider contacting the leadership of the Professional Staff Congress and suggesting a friendly merger of the UFT and PSC?
