Pokemon Go - UFT Style

52 Broadway

George, Tony, Anne, and Shelby are all teachers in danger of losing their licenses. All have been on the hunt for advice and representation. George, a tech wiz, has customized a Pokemon Go App into a UFT Rep Go App. Each rep has a different point value based on their level, status and rarity in the UFT.

George: I got hold of a Chapter leader yesterday, but he refused to represent me because I'm an ATR.

Tony: Well, it's still a hundred points, try for borough rep - they're a thousand points.

Anne: Good luck!

Shelby: George, how does this work?

George: Delegates are a point a piece. Chapter leaders are 100 points. Borough reps are a thousand. Executive board delegates 5,000 points. Special representatives are 100,000 points and the president is a million points.

Anne: I'm going to get them all!

Tony: Yeah, and maybe one will help you!


  1. Sorry you guys have to play this game. Chapter leaders are specifically told they represent ATRs at meetings I attend, but of course we don't all attend the meetings.

  2. Unfortunately it's not what the UFT says that counts, it's what it does or doesn't do.

  3. Haven't started playing Pokemon Go? Download Pokemon Go (Available for Android and iOS)
