We are seeking new petitioners.
We are seeking more petitioners for our Article 78 to grant UFT members wider access to the remote work accommodation. In the Article 78 we filed, we argued that the system by which the NYC DOE dispensed remote work accommodations is arbitrary and capricious.
Judge Ramseur of the Manhattan NYS Civil Court ruled in the favor of our 5 petitioners and has (thus far) granted them TEMPORARY injunctive relief from reporting to work in person.
In layman’s terms, the five petitioners WON their case! Unfortunately it immediately just applies to them. BUT ALL IS NOT LOST.
We are hoping to broadening this injunction to a longer duration for these 5 petitioners and we would like to fight for more petitioners to be granted this opportunity.
If you would like to join us and be able to hopefully be granted an opportunity to work remotely, we would need you to commit to joining us.
This will cost some money (fee to be determined) and you will have to put your name/story on a petition as to why you feel that you were denied or are not being granted access to a remote work accommodation (eg: you are pregnant and were denied; you are 31 and care for an elderly parent).
None of our petitioners faced any form of retaliation for filing the suit.
** Anyone who is going to try to Badmouth Bryan Glass, Lydia Howrilka, the court, or the 5 petitioners will be immediately banned from this page.
While we wish that this decision did apply to more UFT members, we can see this as an opportunity to open the door to more UFT members to file an Article 78 (like the Brave 5 did) with the help of Glass and Howrilka, and be granted a remote work accommodation.
