Question For NYC Retired Teachers

Belonged to two unions. When I retired, connection ended. Am told United Federation of Teachers retirees vote in their elections. Since you have no day-to-day interest, why is this permitted?

Datalounge is the absolute correct place to ask this question

DL holds teachers in contempt.

Retirees vote for leadership but are limited to a certain number of votes. Active teachers can always out vote them. They can’t vote to ratify contracts.

I get the point though and retired teachers probably should have no say in leadership. FYI most younger teacher have zero interest in union matters probably because they don’t expect to last as teachers.
