Another Losing Hand Negotiated By Our Failed Union Leadership.
In my twenty-five years I worked as a teacher, every contract or changes to the contract negotiated by our union leadership always require member "givebacks" by the UFT. Now our failed union leadership negotiated a parental;, not family leave provision, that required the members to give back 75 days worth of a raise. You can read the UFT negotiated parental leave document Here.
While our union leadership proclaim victory, the City's Independent Budget Office determined that the De Blasio Administration would save $9.5 million dollars with the deal.
Read the ICEUFT blog for a detailed analysis of the UFT negotiated parental leave provisions and once again the UFT membership gets snookered. Furthermore, read what Reality Based Educator feels about our union leadership. Here.
