What are the UFT and other school worker unions going to do about making us whole?
What the unions should be demanding now is that people who made it in should be given an extra day in their sick banks and those who stayed out should not have a day deducted from their sick banks for missing school.
Alas, I doubt very much the UFT leadership will make these demands.
But I have another idea on how the UFT leadership can make us whole on this.
Since the official Carmen Farina policy is to keep NYC schools opened so long as Macy's is opened, we should get a 20% discount at any Macy's store.
If the measure of whether NYC schools stay open or not is whether Macy's is open or not, that kinda makes us unofficial Macy's employees and arguably eligible for the employee discount at the store.
