UFT Members Need Not Apply

The ICE-UFT blog reports that Unity, the anti-democratic monopoly party that manages the UFT patronage mill, has approved a change in the contract without bothering to run it by the membership. There will be a $5,000 bonus for new math and science teachers.

If you're already working as an NYC math or science teacher, too bad. You get nothing.

This precedent-setting change comes despite Unity's rhetoric about how it hasn't approved merit pay, and its repeated insistence the lead teacher position does not reflect it.

Also, Unity has approved the end of extended-time schools. So much for its talk of how important and effective they are.

Remarkably, Unity hacks on Edwize continue to blame Bloomberg for all the woes of the system, despite their oft-repeated willingness to go along with things they themselves have condemned in the past.
