FACT-FINDERS TO UFT: TAKE A 20% PAY CUT!

LET’S DO THE MATH

The fact-finding report has been widely reported as providing us with an 11% increase in pay. When the actual numbers are crunched, however, we end up losing, in secondary schools, over 20% in real wages.(Elementary teachers lose slightly less). This is not a “time for money” swap. This is “legal robbery.”

Let’s Do The Math....

For Principal Controlled Time:

Currently
Five  42  minute average periods =                             210       minutes per day
PD (Daily Average - 60 minutes divided by 5) =        12       minutes per day
Total                                                                               222       minutes per day

Fact-finding
Five  41 minute periods + 1 (loss of self-directed
              prof. period) =                                               246       minutes per day
Small Group Instruction =                                            30       minutes per day
Additional coverages and loss of 3 days vacation
             (1520 minutes divided by 190 school days,
            the highest no. of days in Metro area) =             8      minutes per day
Faculty and Department conferences (80 mins
            X 16 divided by 190)                                         6.7   minutes per day
                                                                                   290.7   minutes per day

Net increase is 68.7 minutes per day or 31 %!
The proposal is for 11% leaving a net pay cut of 20 %!

Will the teachers accept it or will they rebel? If they are smart, they will rebel.

You guys need to turn on word verification to get rid of the spam.

I am absolutely disgusted that the executive board of the UFT voted to accept this abomination as the basis for a contract.

We are better off with nothing.
