Just got the news the appeal decision is out.
The statement from Marianne:
Today, the NYC Organization of Public Service Retirees won their case in the First Department NY Appellate Court. The Court was very clear Code § 12-126 (b) (1) provides: “The city will pay the entire cost of health insurance coverage for city employees, city retirees, and their dependents, not to exceed one hundred percent of the full cost of H.I.P.-H.M.O. on a category basis.”
The court correctly determined that Administrative Code § 12-126 (b) (1) requires respondents to pay the entire cost, up to the statutory cap, of any health insurance plan a retiree selects.
The Retirees applaud the decision.

We need to keep up the fight because the UFT leadership is doubling down on its misinformation/disinformation campaign with the City Council.
