I and TEACHERS FOR CHOICE ask that Michael Mulgrew advocates strongly to bring back the weekly testing option for those educators who are willing to agree to this but not vaccination. The entire MLC supports this at a bare minimum, and Mr. Mulgrew stands alone in NYC labor in abandoning choice for his membership.
Currently, 50 educators have followed my lead and left the UFT in the past week. I know this is true because I’ve seen their emailed letters.
Please keep in mind these 50 brave educators followed my lead only by reading my written posts and instructions. I have done no press about this (yet) I have provided no webinar ‘how-to’ instructions (yet). Thousands are interested in following my lead but still have questions that I can easily clear up for them if I choose to do so.
If nothing happens to bring the testing option back to NYC educators rest assured I will be promoting a mass exit from the UFT with much more force & vigor than I have done to date.Thank you for your time.
