ATRs and Health

I'm hearing that ATR teachers who have not been able to find a job within one year will be offered a "voluntary" severance package under Unity's new contract. Consequences for declining the "offer" are not specified. If the UFT and the City do not agree on a number, the amount of severance pay will go to arbitration.

Health benefits are up for future negotiation under this agreement. We will not have a vote on any such changes. Think 1.5% of your salary for health costs and adjust the "raise" accordingly, if Mayor Mike has his druthers.

We will have no say whatsoever if we vote yes.

Consider mayoral control and ask yourself whether Randi has agreed to support its renewal in '09. What other motivation would the mayor have to settle with her?
