TEACHERS VOTE NO ON APPR

Hamburg Teachers, I recently received an email from two members of your APPR committee, both expressed deep concerns about the initiative that you will vote on in the next few days.  The committee members have expressed that they both have felt strong armed by the HTA President and the negotiator for your labor agreements. The committee members asked that I write a posting URGING you to vote NO on APPR.  The HTA members who wrote expressed serious concerns about the lack of information available, and more troubling the stupidity they have experienced in the likes of the President of the Hamburg Teachers Union, and the lead negotiator of your contract.

Please read the following from your fellow teachers, who under fear of retaliation asked to remain private in their identity ( a theme in the Hamburg School District).

"VOTE NO TO APPR"!!!!!

We bailed out the district by going to one provider for health care, now we will bail out the district with APPR.

If we give away APPR, what will have left to bargain with ? We are GIVING everything away. Why do we bother with negotiations?

Is HEMIO in our contract? I'm getting mixed answers. Where do I go to get a copy of the contract?

Can someone publish APPR so I know what I'm voting on?

FYI, APPR will be retroactive to September.

Hamburg teachers are a joke....rob z is an idiot.

do you trust ACHRAMOVITCH? said...

Why would anyone vote on anything if they were not given a copy to examine for themselves? This is the bigger question.

You would always wonder what is in the fine print?

What would happen to tenure as teachers know it?

This is not mandatory.

Why the rush?

Why is Hamburg one of the first to adopt this?

What happens when the district comes after a teacher, the same individuals causing the problems are to sit on the review committee to determine their fate? The Supt. makes the final decision. Do you trust Supt. STEVE ACHRAMOVITCH with your livelyhood?

This will erode our UNION RIGHTS.

Why pay dues?

I agree if we go along with this what is left to negotiate with? The Supt. has already made it perfectly clear that we will have a wage freeze, so why give him anything? Fellow Teachers follow your intelligent lead not your hearts.

VOTE NO

Achramo is sharping his pencils to start his downsizing through APPR.

What kind of fools have we become?

Is this vote to be secret ballot, through electronic voting? I don't think so since the district runs the site, this is TOTALLY ILLEGAL. Demand a true secret BALLOT not this sham of a vote. WARNING YOU AHEAD OF TIME.

HELLO;

This is how the administration will play this one out.

-fIRST the school principals will be given a list of older teachers and start harrassing them first to get rid of them.

-second the young teachers will go along as long as they are not in the first round of targeting.

-third after that anyone they deem they don't like (you didn't say hello to a board member or administrator or they don't like the color of your hair, or something about you, you are next.

Remember first the NAZI's came after the disadvantaged, I did nothing than they came after the unionists, I did nothing, then the Jews, and I did nothing and than they came after me and no one was there for me. THE END

The saying goes that you are only as strong as your weakest link, well teachers you have many weak links. I agree, your union leadership over the past several years has been terrible - but where are all of the members? Everyone sits back and complains, but no one shows up for meetings, no one comes up with ideas for good PR and unifying activities. Look around to other districts and you can see how unions are supposed to operate. You complain about teh leadership - but how did they get elected in the first place. Stand up and put your dues to work.

Disappointed with our Union Leadership.

John & Peg you represent us not just ARMOR or the ADMINISTRATION. We pay dues and expect something better than what you are delivering. Sorry I voted for you both.

Dizzy, batty, clueless, you name it who the hell do John & Peg REPRESENT?
FYI John & Peg you represent us Union Paying Members.
VOTE NO. The administration gives us nothing why do we give up anything.

How to fairly evaluate teachers?
Will they take into consideration children with special needs, absenteeism, class size. What do we do when we are targeted for no apparent reason. The district has been know to fabricate situations about teachers and staff. Our appeal will be heard by the same people making the charges. Corruption, nothing new to this district.
