President Jacqueline Pogue Lyons has signed an MOA on the impacts & effects of Mayor Bowser's COVID-19 vaccination mandate.
- WTU successfully bargained for Teachers to receive sick leave for getting vaccinations or boosters. Specifically, the MOA requires DCPS to grant each Teacher three (3) hours of sick leave per injection for a vaccination or booster against COVID-19. In addition, the MOA provides each Teacher with eight (8) hours of sick leave for getting fully vaccinated or a booster.
- WTU also fought hard to secure concessions from DCPS to provide COVID-19 testing for Teachers to help keep our school communities safe.
- The MOA protects Teachers who have submitted and are awaiting a decision on a request for a medical or religious exemption by providing that those Teachers may continue to test weekly in lieu of complying with the mandate.
- The MOA also provides that Teachers who choose to resign or involuntarily separate from DCPS as a result of the vaccination mandate shall have their personnel records expunged of any disciplinary actions taken on the basis of their vaccination status.
