TRO GRANTED! September 27th Deadline to get Vaccine is Gone!

by Michael Kane

9-15-21

Last week I had posted a link to the full complaint from the Municipal Labor Council (MLC) suing NYC over the forced vaccination mandate in NYC Schools. On September 14th a judge in New York State Supreme Court issued a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) which stops the vaccine mandate from proceeding forward. That means if you are not vaccinated on September 27th you still have a job with the NYC DOE. This was confirmed by a tweet from the DC 37 union which represents school aide workers in NYC.

Getting a TRO granted is about the best possible outcome in the beginning of a legal proceeding. It doesn’t guarantee that the case will win, but it is a very strong signal that the judge is in agreement with the petitioners of the case.

TEACHERS FOR CHOICE is still recommending ALL NYC EDUCATORS LEAVE THE UFT NOW!

This lawsuit was not successful because of the UFT at all. It took teachers leaving the union and protesting massively to get pathetic Michael Mulgrew to even admit there was a problem with force injecting the COVID vaccine into educators. Mulgrew stated repeatedly “THE CITY IS WITHIN THEIR LEGAL RIGHTS” to force inject us.

Sorry, Mulgrew still sucks. And Randi is way worse (more on that soon)

But thanks to the leadership in the MLC, and DC 37 whose leaders fought against the mandate from the very beginning, we have some temporary relief.

It is just tempoorary, so stay tuned. Much more fighting is to come. And know this, it is no coincidence that TWO TRO’s stopping forced vaccination came from NY courts the DAY AFTER OUR HISTORIC PROTEST IN MANHATTAN.

More soon

    1. The TRO will be for as long as the judge declares it is for.

      on Sept 22nd, there will be a hearing where both sides get to argue in front of the judge. That has not happened yet. At that time the judge will rule however the judge so determines he should rule. But remember this — getting a TRO granted in a case is the highest and clearest of all signs that a judge agrees with the petitioners complaint. I am cautiously optimistic. We may not get EVERYTHING we want, but I would be utterly shocked if we did not get some significant changes from this case.

      PLUS — TEACHERS FOR CHOICE LAWSUIT WILL BE FILED WITHIN DAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. Why is there no testing option? NYPD & FDNY are exploring that as we speak.

    Why did uft accept city’s offer with no testing component. Union should have walked away and let it go to PERB.
