UFT exec board says voters should decide on term limits

As we indicated it might, the United Federation of Teachers’ executive board has just passed a resolution recommending a voter referendum on term limits. Tomorrow at a Delegate Assembly, the resolution goes before the delegates — teachers and other UFT members representing each city school — who could add amendments.

For now, here’s the fifth of six resolutions the delegates will see:

Resolved, that at this moment of economic crisis, UFT affirms its fundamental belief in the importance of respecting the democratic will of the people, and calls for the submission of any change in the term limits law to popular referendum.

We’ll post the full text of the resolution as soon as we have it.

Update: Read the resolution after the jump.
