“Vaccinations must be negotiated between employers and workers, not coerced,” says Weingarten. The National Education Association supports allowing an option for weekly testing for teachers instead of requiring a vaccine. New York’s state United Teachers union likewise opposes a vaccine mandate.
This is utter nonsense.
What is to negotiate? What do the leaders of the AFT and the NEA want in return.
Safer classrooms isn’t a good enough deal for them?
This is from the same union leaders that went along with Arne Duncan’s Race to the Top which required teacher rankings and evaluations to be linked to individual student test scores.
Music teachers being evaluated on how their students did on a standardized math test.
What happened to collective bargaining then?
Who would think that Randi Weingarten and Florida governor Ron DeSantis would both be opposed to what they call coercive mandated vaccinations.
Randi says that regular testing should be an alternative.
Regular testing should be mandated too.
