“Congratulations to the United Federation of Teachers for reaching a tentative agreement with the City on behalf of your 120,000 members. This agreement symbolizes the deep appreciation and gratitude felt by so many of us that have observed your labor and resolve to engage and connect with our children even amid a global pandemic. Despite the challenges and obstacles that have emerged, UFT continues to provide our children with the quality education and care that will prepare them to be the future leaders of our city. I want to thank Mayor Eric Adams, The Mayor’s Office of Labor Relations, UFT President, Michael Mulgrew, and everyone else involved in reaching this tentative agreement.”
