A Queens director, who asked not to use his name because he was not allowed to speak to the press, said the late deal makes his job “1,000 times more difficult.” He said he relies on teachers who work with students remotely to help with students arriving and exiting, which now involves temperature checks and health checks.

My manager originally told her that she could work from home, that she had to take it back and that she would allow it again from October 5, when the agreement comes into force. I advise you to ask.

De Blasio loses confidence that it`s not going to be bad.

The UFT letter contains two keywords: “agreement” and “uft-represented”. I think the UFT wants to make sure that future “agreements” only cover the “uft payers” due. There could be another equal treatment lawsuit against you, which is what you are paying for. Unfortunately, in recent weeks and months, this agreement and previous agreements have been profoundly flawed and do not address the issues facing our communities. This is a predictable by-product of undemocratic decisions by our union leaders, who have made it clear that they are prepared to give up virtually anything if it means that President Mulgrew can announce a deal with this government. Impressive! I wonder whether solidarity action has had an impact on this agreement. This should have been the agreement that started on 8.9.20. Mulgrew must have realized that he was about to make a serious extra cost.

Under the terms of the agreement, all public school buildings in New York City remain closed to students until September 21, while final security measures are complete, including the assignment of a school nurse to each building, ventilation checks, and the presence of sufficient protective and cleaning means. . . .
