Cuomo has lost influence and cannot achieve mandatory teacher vaccinations
The New York City Teachers' Union has ceased to obey the orders and recommendations of Governor Andrew Cuomo, mired in sex scandals.
Earlier, Cuomo called on business owners to vaccinate all of their workers. The order was also given to vaccinate the entire school staff, which has more than 60 thousand employees throughout the state of New York.
"We would support local efforts to encourage more vaccinations, such as through programs that require that those who are not vaccinated get tested on a regular basis," the union said. "But it's critical that districts come up with plans to make testing available on-site and at no cost. What we have not supported is a vaccine mandate."
Yesterday, the sexual harassment of 11 women by Andrew Cuomo went public, eventually leading to a loss of confidence in the Governor of New York. Four Governors and US President Joe Biden have called on Cuomo to step down.
