LOS ANGELES – A screenshot obtained by FOX 11 shows UTLA teachers being warned to not share spring break vacation photos to social media as the union continues to push for a safe return to in-person classes.
The screenshot appears to be from a private Facebook group titled, “UTLA FB GROUP- Members Only,” and it has about 5,700 members. In one of the posts from the private group, teachers from the union are being asked to not share vacation photos or show that they’re traveling outside of the country.
The post, obtained by FOX 11’s Bill Melugin, reads:
“Friendly reminder: If you are planning any trips for Spring Break, please keep that off of Social Media. It is hard to argue that it is unsafe for in-person instruction, if parents and the public see vacation photos and international travel.”
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
