Today is the due day for the final payment of what was basically an interest-free loan UFTers made to the city for work we did as far back as 2009. The city and UFT agreed in October to postpone half of the final payment so the money would be paid with the second payroll in July. That I gather turned out to be too difficult so July 22 was the new pay date.
The UFT left it to Amy Arundell to respond to members complaining about why the money promised for July 22 has not yet been deposited into member bank accounts.
My understanding is retirees will wait until August to get their July money and the final per session lump sum will also apparently violate the agreed to July date.
Please be reminded and remind our members that:
Supp checks do not show in the portal until several days after issuance.
Direct deposit checks do not post at dawn to bank accounts. The earliest it will show is after 1:30 PM and many will take a day or two to show. Members should be told that if the check doesn’t post by Monday they should contact us.
Thank you – and I truly appreciate you!!!!
