EXEC BD REPORT: HEALTHCARE UPDATE; CHARTER COLOCATIONS WITHDRAWN; UNITY TABLES MOTION FOR NO PREMIUMS FOR GHI

 This is from Educators of NYC from tonight's Executive Board meeting:

Tonight, it seems that Mulgrew is now moving from pitting retirees vs actives and healthcare vs raises to … It’s healthcare versus education. Is he an agent of the or the Zero Sum Game Champion?

On healthcare, the UFT is still licking its wounds from retirees winning in court to stop UFT endorsed Senior Care copays and the UFT losing with the City Council, who are not changing 12-126. A change would have permitted the City and unions to legally charge more copays and premiums.

However, when it comes to charter schools, it looks like a big victory in that Eva Moskowitz is not getting her way on new Success Academy colocations inside NYC public schools. The UFT is confirming the reports that proposals to colocate Success Academies in a number of public schools have been withdrawn. The Union is praising the community collaborations. 

Back to healthcare, Unity tabled (didn't act upon) a motion that the United for Change High School reps made to fight any premiums for GHI.

Passing the New York Health Act would save billions. Mulgrew is trying to scare members. Mulgrew wants to retain healthcare as a bargaining chip so he can secure raises as he diminishes our healthcare in exchange.
