    Newly-surfaced emails between teachers union executives and officials working for the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) show that the unions played a role in crafting the language of the CDC’s school reopening guidelines, The New York Post reported.

    The emails show that CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky coordinated with American Federation of Teachers (AFT) on language for the guidelines, and the union even described the CDC as its “thought partner.”

    “We were able to review a copy of the draft guidance document over the weekend and were able to provide some initial feedback to several staff this morning about possible ways to strengthen the document,” AFT senior director Kelly Trautner wrote in an email to coronavirus mitigation officials. “…We believe our experiences on the ground can inform and enrich thinking around what is practicable and prudent in future guidance documents.”

    A spokesperson for Walensky denied any political interference in the creation of the guidelines for school reopening:

    “As part of long-standing best practices, CDC has traditionally engaged with organizations and groups that are impacted by guidance and recommendations issued by the agency,” spokesperson Jason McDonald told The Post. “These informative and helpful interactions often result in beneficial feedback that we consider in our final revisions to ensure clarity and usability.”

    To open schools, you do require teachers. if the right had their way, they would pay no attention to teachers' safety. They apparently think the teachers, who are educated and can think, should ignore their own beliefs and rush back to schools when told. It does not work that way. We do have the LCD dictating a lot of policies. Ignore science and what you think and follow what Trump says.

    Do you see the pattern? The 10 most open states on the left—Wyoming, Arkansas, Florida, South Dakota, Utah, Nebraska, Montana, Texas, North Dakota, and Louisiana, in that order—have wildly disparate COVID mortality, ranging from Utah's 67 per 100,000 residents to South Dakota's 221. But what they have in common is politics: all 10 have Republican-controlled state legislatures, all except Louisiana have a Republican governor, all except Montana have two Republican U.S. senators, and in all 10 a majority of the state's delegation to the House of Representatives hails from the GOP.

    You really have not proven in your OP that Unions set any policies. THE ADMINISTRATION SETS POLICIES BASED UPON THE VERY BEST FACTUAL AND PROVEN INFORMATION AVAILABLE TO THEM.

    Labor Unions set standards for the workers they represent- and lobby the government, the public, and EMPLOYERS to adhere to them.

    And you have not proven that any Labor Union, is making it possible for anyone anywhere to skip work and still get paid. THEY HAVE NO CONTROL OVER THAT. A Labor Union may make suggestions or base their opinions- BUT THEY DO NOT HAVE THE POWER TO CARRY IT OUT!

    BUT DO KEEP HOPELESSLY FLAILING YOUR LITTLE WINGS, fanning the flames of discourse and confusion, TRYING TO CONVINCE SOME FOOL SOMEWHERE WITH YOUR DISINFORMATION- AND BARKING UP THE WRONG TREE, TRYING TO SCORE SOME CHEAP SHOT POLITICAL POINT!

    QUESTION IS- WHY THE FUCK ARE YOU NOT OUT THERE WORKING TODAY- INSTEAD OF SPENDING ALL OF YOUR AVAILABLE TIME HERE TODAY CRYING AND COMPLAINING ABOUT UNIONS?
