Here are some parts that interested me.
President Michael Mulgrew is soon to be about to start crying poverty as contract time nears as this excerpt from the question period shows.
Sean Ahern, East River Academy (D79)
Trump and DeVos did not get the cuts they wanted. And we have a supposedly progressive mayor. Do we need a blue state revolt? We went through years with Bloomberg and Giuliani. What do we have to do?
This blog makes a not very bold prediction we will be asked to pitch in right around the time our contract is up.
As for the longer school day that comments here feared, we had a question on that too.
Giraldo Maldonado, Chapter Leader Manhattan Comprehensive Day and Night
Caranza’s visiting schools. Our AP says he wants to extend the school day.
MM: Extended Day usually refers to after-school activities. There will be no extra work without extra pay. I believe that’s what the new chancellor is talking about. (then a long tangent on snow days)
On the new state law protecting unions, we have this:
Thomas, International HS at Union Square
What are the specifics of the new state law? Even my membership team members may not want to pay dues.
MM: We are currently reviewing the services, to see what will the effect will be. We are not ready yet. (Pension consult – no. Representation inside of the contract – yes. Representation beyond the contract – no.) Every local around the state is reviewing it. By the way, Cuomo signed the law here (motioning to the stage).
Much of the rest of the meeting was about our fine new UFT App.
Should I be sorry or glad I missed the DA?
