“Congratulations to the United Federation of Teachers and its 120,000 members on reaching a tentative contract agreement with the City. Through crises and unprecedented challenges of the pandemic, public school teachers and support staff have been steadfastly committed to our students’ academic and personal success. This agreement is another step towards ensuring that our public education workforce is supported in helping our students recover and receive the well-rounded education they need to succeed. I applaud the Administration for reaching this tentative agreement.”
