history of ulrs
History of ULRs

During a trip to London, the AFT-BTU leadership were introduced to Union Learning Representatives and were immediately struck with the value of such a position as it relates to the field of education. They brought the concept back to the AFT and later the BTU became the first local to negotiate this position into their teacher level contract.

As a part of the monumental new teacher contract, a ULR will be selected for each school to help teachers navigate the promotion process and accumulate Aus.
