CTU is expected to finalize an agreement with the city Wednesday.

The safety proposal that CTU members will now accept or reject amounts to six pages. The union’s House of Delegates gave it the green light – along with agreeing to return to classrooms after voting only to work remotely last week due to the COVID-19 surge.

Union members will be voting at 4 p.m.

If the teachers vote to reject the proposal, we’re told its possible union delegates could decide whether teachers will have to go fully remote again.
