672 School Jobs Are Lost in Largest Single-Agency Layoff Under Bloomberg

“District Council 37 made three proposals to the city that included
giving up paid holidays and reducing the maximum number of hours school
aides were allowed to work as ways to save money. The city rejected all
of them.

Union leaders, dressed in black as if in mourning, kept the pressure up
until the last minute, holding a lunchtime rally Friday on the steps of
City Hall to denounce the layoffs as political payback, a
characterization city officials have dismissed.”
