The United Federation of Teachers (UFT) has negotiated a deal with Mayor De Blasio that forces NYC teachers to be subjected to randomly selected COVID tests once a month. If a teacher is selected to take that test, and they refuse, they will be placed on leave without pay.
What is troubling about this is not so much the random testing itself, but the precedent that it sets where a union is compelling medical testing for their members to maintain employment.
Mandatory testing may be the first step toward mandatory vaccination.
While every teacher who wants to get the coming COVID vaccine should have easy and quick access to it, do we really want our unions or governments forcing medical procedures upon us to keep our jobs?
The president of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), Randi Weingarten is now on the record that she wants to force teachers to get the COVID vaccine to keep our jobs.
