“When teachers ask, “why should I be a member of teachers union,” you might point out that no teacher, acting alone, can affect the changes we can all affect together. “

– Ira Fader, MTA General Counsel, in regards to the MTA’s successful effort to resolve the Retirement Plus issue for thousands of MTA members.
