The Daily News is playing a cynical game by giving so much coverage to the dissident MORE Caucus in the UFT ("New study plans," 5/17). This faction is opposed to the proposed contract because it purports to be more militant than Michael Mulgrew in the defense of Teacher rights.
The News, on the other hand, wants to discredit Mayor de Blasio and pave the way for Eva Moskowitz to become the next Mayor.
MORE and the News are trying to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory for UFT members, who have waited too long for a fair contract. Politics makes strange bedfellows.
