UFT President Michael Mulgrew on April 25 won his second term as the union’s president with 84 percent of the vote.
“I’m honored that thousands of UFT members have supported my re-election. I look forward to working with them for the next three years as we continue to fight for the best for our students, their families, and the schools.”
Mulgrew began teaching in 1993, and spent most of his classroom career working with special needs students at the William E. Grady High School in Brooklyn. After serving as Vice President for Career and Technical Schools of the UFT, he was elected to his first full term as president of the union in 2010.
With approximately 97 percent of the ballots counted by the American Arbitration Association, Mulgrew had 34,919 votes out of 41,681.
