UFT Hits State Senators Over Budget

Despite the oddly soothing music, this UFT video captures some pretty irate teachers, unhappy with the state’s late budget.

“We are a dignified profession,” said Khiera Kersey-Heggs, a teacher in the Bronx. “No matter what these politicians are saying about us.” Later, a bunch of teachers and UFT organizers are heard chanting, “Do your job and fix the budget.”

Electeds who are highlighted in the video are Ruth Hassel-Thompson, Eric Schneiderman, Jeff Klein, Pedro Espada, Ruben Diaz Sr. and Jose Serrano, Jr.
