Go over to NYC Educator and read tonight's Executive Board report from Arthur.
On Early Retirement Incentive:
DOE--When you're near the end of an administration things get weird. Primary in June has made it weirder. Admin wants to remain relevant, so city budget is a fight for us. Have not engaged in Early Retirement Incentive.
On possible vaccine mandates for our members:
Moskowitz mandating vaccines, will we take a position?
Doctors who advise us say integrity of these vaccines is unprecedented. I get emails on both sides. People need to think this through. If we don't hit 70%, this will be around for years. Will be no medical accommodation based on people not wanting to be vaccinated. Not medical condition.
Mayor's race shaping into three person race. Stringer has allegations against him, but most unions who've endorsed have stuck. Allegations are allegations. Our group that first endorsed says we should continue.
Never thought we'd go back to Bloomberg days. Yang isn't billionaire, but is tied with this group. Adams is tied with Students First. We will get word out.
On Medicare privatization:
Health care updates?
Mulgrew--Mediator at MLC cannot go forward because our questions haven't been answered.
