Correspondent Mike Schirtzer from MORE just texted that a question was asked tonight about the status of the Absent Teacher Reserves at the Executive Board.
UFT Secretary Howie Schoor said we're working with the DOE- we are bargaining - near an agreement - nothing to report now.
He added that we should have something next meeting- city wants a deal we want a deal, but can't bargain in public.
On our friends from the High School of Applied Communications, Borough Rep Ron Freiser said it's two or three teachers. We must talk to all of them. VP Janelle Hinds is going in.
Howie Schoor said steps are being taken but we need to get steps straight.
