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. In a reversal of education policy, New York educators can now work remotely when teaching students who learn from home, as outlined in a new agreement reached Friday between the city and the teachers` union. Also included in the agreement: Parent-teacher conferences are held online, unless a person is asked. But the procedure for authorizing workarounds could take time if there is a disagreement between the principal and the teachers. The measures taken in this regard are described in a 12-piece memo and require that at least 55% of union members vote in support. If union members and administrators cannot reach an agreement, they can ask their superintendent and the school district representative for help in finding a solution. At the summer town hall meeting, Mulgrew said they were negotiating housing for those who care for/live vulnerable family members. The complaint may have expedited the process to reach this agreement. 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. I am pleased that we can finally vote on the program we have developed.
We have a timetable that we are satisfied with, that is not in line with the other agreements, but that works. No class-sized injuries, only mixed roles. We didn`t want to be with another mixed teacher at distance pls. This COVID 19 pandemic has not strengthened the leadership of the UFT to protect the working conditions of their teachers. The inaction of leaders is a common thread that brings together all the workers who are facing this crisis. Like our heads of government, UFT leaders did not stand up for teachers and families in these unprecedented times, for example, when we had to go to work in the middle of a pandemic and our spring break was removed. It is particularly important that UFT members still do not have a Memorandum of Understanding (MOA). An MOA is a temporary agreement that sets the rights and conditions of workers for a specified period of time. Although the FTU contracts are still in force, they have not predicted the diversity of new problems encountered during distance learning. As a result, teachers and related service officers now need an MOA pandemic.
