Union members say deal between NYC, UFT doesn't do enough to address issues in school system
Union members are calling out the United Federation of Teachers President Michael Mulgrew over an agreement made the New York City to push the start date of school.
Mulgrew tells News 12 the agreement calls on additional safety measures that need to be met, including having enough PPE for its teachers.
The group, More UFT, says the deal doesn't do enough to address issues in the school system.
Mulgrew called the federal funding for schools amid the crisis a disgrace, saying there likely isn't enough money for the school year.
Remote learning starts Sept. 16, with blended and in-person learning beginning on Sept. 21.
