The following is from the MORE UFT caucus website. It is posted with permission. Last Friday, the DOE released a miserable 2023-24 school calendar: significantly more work days than this year, several missing religious holidays, and parent teacher conferences scheduled on Fridays. Tellingly, the city did this without reaching an agreement with our union on a pilot workday. Union members have spent the week in a state of panicked confusion, unsure about the status of next year’s workday and ongoing SBO negotiations at their school.
