If you can pick only one brush to paint the very large majority of ATRs then it would be the brush of experience. Tired of being treated like second class citizens, by their employer and union, a group of ATRs met to organize, mobilize and form an alliance…the ATR Alliance.

One main focus of the group is to acquire UFT Functional Chapter status just like some of these other groups within the UFT: guidance counselors; hearing educational services; laboratory specialists and technicians; nurses and therapists; paraprofessionals; school secretaries; social workers and psychologists; speech teachers.
DOE and UFT, like it or not, this group is becoming increasingly organized and you are helping spread these experienced educators among the 1,800 schools.
