The latest email from Michael Mulgrew on the possible ERI.
We are still fighting for an early retirement incentive.
The battle with City Hall to secure an early retirement incentive that benefits UFT members for all job titles continues. We are up against a major obstacle: City Hall is concerned that a broader early retirement incentive will lead to a shortage of qualified staff in certain titles, but letting the city choose only some titles for an incentive would set an unacceptable precedent. We can’t let that happen.
We are hard at work trying to negotiate the crucial details of this incentive before the city’s May 31 reporting deadline to the state. We will continue to work hard and hopefully come to an agreement that provides this well-deserved opportunity to as many of our eligible members as possible. We will keep you posted every step of the way.
“Our battle with City Hall continues. We will not let them divide our members when it comes to the benefits they all deserve. We stand together in solidarity as a union.”
–Michael Mulgrew, UFT President
