Uft Doe Agreement

Posted by on Apr 13, 2021 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Unknown 7:10, my friend has in person classes either 1 or 2 days a week, depending on where we are in the cycle. My manager originally told her that she could work from home, that she had to terminate it, and that she would allow it again from October 5, when the agreement came into force. I recommend asking. One principle in Queens, which asked not to use his name because he did not have the power to speak to the press, said the late agreement made his job “1,000 times more difficult.” He said he relies on teachers who work with distant students to help with students arriving and firing, which now involves temperature checks and health screenings. We are pleased that the FTU and doE have reached the reasonable conclusion that teachers, paraprofits and other school staff should not risk being exposed to COVID-19 by commuting through the city and sitting with colleagues in poorly ventilated rooms to teach remotely. Since even the very small progress made in this agreement will not come into force until October 5, this simple request comes too late for pre-K and D75 who have started working personally with students this week, and certainly too late for the tens of thousands of teachers who have to start their classes in person on Tuesday and Thursday. The other provisions of this agreement are similar and, in some cases, much more problematic: Mark Cannizzaro, president of the School`s Board of Inspectors and Administrators, the union that represents principals, was furious that the Ministry of Education had not informed principals of the agreement, with many details of teacher learning in their schools on Friday night. Headteachers have some leeway and can ask 20% of teachers who have remote orders to travel to school buildings with appropriate notice. The agreement does not say how much an announcement is sufficient.

The agreement attempts to address staff shortages by allowing schools to circumvent some of the rules set out in a previous agreement with the teachers` union. But it also brings a whole new set of complications. Once again, UFT leaders and the Ministry of Education agreed to nod to reason, while leaving unanswered important questions from school staff, parents and students for months. This recent agreement is in fact a total tolerance of the mayor`s mixed education plan, underfunded, uncertain, understaffed and informative. Complaints that were filed last week were not brought to the DOE by UFT. They were delayed for this new BS agreement, which is now responsible for the DOE`s inability to comply with the agreement with the chapter`s leaders. Chapter Leaders are now expected to create a specific SBO to enable MOA violations and increase the workload of their employees. Otherwise, dieUFT can intervene to negotiate for you. Instead of resolving our complaints in two business days, nothing was done. The CL was informed last night (9/25). Uft still on their crap CLs, endangering the staff of our schools and intentionally any resolution for their health/safety – corporate complaints spent the 29th and October back of the students. You failed in this town.

The SBO language is the biggest deal of this agreement. Who has really heard of a union negotiating the addition of language to create a contract modification process on a subject as central as class size? Increasing the size of the class is not the answer.
