Nice Work if You Can Get It

Now that all the ruckus about the contract has died down, Unity has voted itself a raise.

While much of what I read on EdzUp is tongue-in-cheek, I'm told by someone in the know that this part is genuine:

Motion: To approve the following:

Raises for UFT Staff (For Period Covering May 2003-October

2005) Resolution

Resolved, that the UFT Staff will receive the increases in the same manner as those negotiated by the UFT represented school system employees.


Note that they did not, apparently, vote themselves extra days. They also neglected to assign themselves extra minutes. Since they do not teach, they will not get an extra class.

Nor, apparently, did they see fit to vote for cafeteria patrol, potty patrol, or hall duty.

They did not seem to restrict themselves in being hired for other postions, nor did they grant their bosses more discretion in disciplining them.

I guess they forgot.

Isn't it great when you can simply vote on what sort of raise you'd like? Don't you wish you could do that?

I'd have to conclude that Unity did a much better job during this round of negotiations. Now, if only they'd negotiate a contract like that for us.

Because despite what they want you to think, we're the ones they're supposed to be working for.
