Work Seven Days And Get Four CAR Days, How Is That Fair?
It appears the Mayor and the Chancellor have agreed on compensation. For the seven day Easter/Passover vacation, the City will give everybody four CAR days. If the teachers are teaching remote learning all those days then why aren't they getting seven CAR days?
Obviously, if UFT members would vote on the compensation deal it would be rejected overwhelmingly. However, our union leadership has no intention to let the members vote and embarrass the City. In return for the four CAR days the teachers give up their entire Easter vacation, including Thursday and Friday April 9th and 10th.
Will the UFT sue the City for additional compensation? Maybe and maybe not, we'll see.
