United Teachers Los Angeles recently instructed faculty and staff not to post pictures of their vacations on social media because doing so will contradict the union’s narrative that it isn’t safe to reopen schools, according to a private social media entry.
The post, made in a private Facebook group, urged that if parents see photos of teachers on vacation, it will be hard to argue against reopening schools, per BizPacReview.
“If you are planning any trips for Spring Break, please keep that off Social Media,” the post reads.
“It is hard to argue that it is unsafe for in-person instruction, if parents and the public see vacation photos and international travel,” it continued, according to a screenshot tweeted by Fox LA correspondent Bill Melugin.
NEW: In a leaked post from a private Facebook group for UTLA union members only, teachers are warned not to post on social media if they go on spring break vacations because the optics would be bad for them while UTLA is refusing to return to "unsafe" in-person schooling @FOXLA pic.twitter.com/KxQc7k450T

In a statement back to Melugin, the union refused to acknowledge the implications of the post.
“We have a diverse membership and they are able to post their views on personal Facebook pages and in this Facebook group – however UTLA does not monitor nor is responsible for the content,” the union fired back.
Teachers’ unions across the country are continuing to pose huge problems for those who want to return to in-person learning. Chicago is the perfect example.
The CDC has urged several times that reopening schools is, in fact, safe, but teachers’ unions continue to argue with lawmakers that they will not do so until they are vaccinated.
According to an article published in the Journal of American Medicine, holding in-person class carries minimal risk of spreading the virus.
Even Joe Biden’s CDC director, Rochelle Walensky, said “there is increased data to suggest that schools can safely reopen and that safe reopening does not suggest that teachers need to be vaccinated.”
A CDC study found that across the country between April and October of 2020, the percentage of emergency room mental health visits increased by 24 percent for those between the ages of five and 11, and 31 percent for those between the ages of 12 and 17, Business Insider reports.
A flood of additional research has found major spikes in depression and anxiety, and multiple studies have found that students – especially those with disabilities and from low-income families – are learning less than they should be.
Hence, it’s critical to return to in-person learning. But, rather than caring about the wellbeing and education of students, all these teachers’ unions care about is themselves.
