It has now been nearly four years since the contract has expired, and New York City public school teachers are still without a new, fair and decent contract.
They are still working under the old one. Why isn’t UFT president Michael Mulgrew pushing very hard for a new contract for his members? The UFT and the DOE need to work on getting this serious issue resolved. All of the bickering in the media between Mulgrew and the DOE needs to stop, and the focus must be on working to secure a new contract for all of the hard-working and dedicated teachers in our city schools as soon as possible, and that should be NOW.
