Worker Representation

The foundation of UESF’s representation structure is the Union Building Committee (UBC), the most important and influential representative body in the school, equally recognized by administration and members. The UBC is the collective voice of teachers and paraprofessionals, working to ensure that UESF members are involved in the school-wide decision making that affects their work lives and their students’ education.

The role of the UBC is to ensure that the rights that teachers and paraprofessionals have struggled for over time are not violated,  to enforce the contract, and to ensure that the professional voice of educators is heard.

If you have an issue at your school site, please contact your Building Representative in order to help resolve the issue. If the problem is urgent or cannot be solved at the site level, please contact the UESF staff representative assigned to your site.
