The Hamburg Teachers Association in an abrupt action has presented a contract to its members which calls for a wage freeze with no guarantees that jobs would be retained. It was reported to Concerned that the Chief Negotiator at a sparsely attended meeting yesterday told the teachers that jobs would be saved. Does the Union have any guarantees that if a wage freeze is passed that teachers won't be cut? If this blog has proved anything, Steve Achramovitch and the administration cannot be trusted. It seems so obvious that the pink slips handed out today are a tactic to pit young teachers against old teachers. It also seems so obvious that it is working. Steve Achramovitch and the overpaid administration have made zero concessions. Not surprisingly, they expect concessions from the teachers. Why would you vote on anything unless you had all the facts? All of this should be a red flag to everyone. Wake up! Teachers are voting on a wage freeze and they will get nothing in return.
- Teachers went to a single health care provider and what did they get in return? NOTHING*
- Teachers passed APPR and what did they get? NOTHING**
- Teachers will pass this contract and what will they get? NOTHING*
DO NOT VOTE ON ANYTHING UNLESS STEVE ACHRAMOVITCH AND THE BOARD OF EDUCATION WILL GUARANTEE ALL THE TEACHERS WILL BE SAVED!
