NTU Update - June 9, 2017

​Colleagues,

1). Calendar Update  - As you are all aware, your employers have decided to cut short your Summer vacation an entire week with little notice.  While we are working hard to ensure that you don't have to come back so soon, the most powerful way to make that happen is in the strong hearts and hands of NTU Members.

Colleagues

1)     Contract Update: We have gotten a lot of questions about “When we will be receiving our retro checks?” We are working with NPS to get them out as soon as possible. Right now, we know that they will be two separate checks (one for 2015-2016 and one for 2016-2017 school year) and both checks will be out by July 15 at the latest.

NTU Update - May 5

Colleagues,

1) Statement from President Abeigon regarding contract ratification - Recent headlines document that our struggle to continue to survive is real. Despite a major victory in its defense, our well-funded enemies will not stop their attacks on Seniority (LIFO: Last In First Out), nor will they stop attacking Tenure.
