This looks as if to be the fault of the New York School System rather than the teachers union. I believe they most likely overlooked that clause in the contract. If they have not corrected this fault then again, it is the fault of the city. Perhaps they need to be stronger than the union right now. I know plenty of teachers looking for work and not a single one is union.

I agree wholeheartedly with DB. Teacher unions are the worst, and I can't understand why. It's as if law enforcement was more forgiving to teachers. Here in Mexico the huge, monolithic education syndicate, the S.E.P., is associated with vandalism, unreasonable and obviously fabricated strikes (asking 300% salary increases, for example), etc. Unions are great for gaining leverage against the intrinsically biased labor market, the problem lies in their leaders. They corrupt easily because they have too little accountability.
