This came from Sue Edelman on Twitter today. I don't know why it is not yet in the headlines everywhere.
The story is at SIlive.com:
UPDATE: Early Friday evening, a federal appeals court granted a temporary injunction staying the enforcement of the mandate requiring all city public-school employees to be vaccinated against the coronavirus (COVID-19) by Monday.
The United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit said the injunction is in place only until a three-member panel of the court can review an appeal of a Brooklyn federal court judge’s ruling on Thursday, which upheld the mandate.
A group of teachers had filed a suit two weeks ago seeking to block the vaccine requirement. The teachers are appealing the ruling by Judge Brian M. Cogan.
The review, which is on an expedited basis, could possibly occur over the weekend.
“We’re confident our vaccine mandate will continue to be upheld once all the facts have been presented, because that is the level of protection our students and staff deserve,” said a Department of Education (DOE) spokeswoman. “Our current vax-or-test mandate remains in effect and we’re seeking speedy resolution by the Circuit Court next week. Over 82 percent of DOE employees have been vaccinated and we continue to urge all employees to get their shot by September 27."
UPDATE: Sue Edelman on Twitter with a response from Leonie Haimson:
Sound advice, Leonie.
UPDATE-UFT STATEMENT FROM TWITTER:
Why doesn't the UFT, like Leonie, advise its members to get vaccinated in their official statement?
