Alert2ALL MEMBERS WHO ARE ON EWP

The next to last paragraph in the letter sent to you by Vanessa Rodriguez is incorrect. It states that unless you find a placement, you may be assigned to a role or multiple roles throughout the school year in order to best serve the needs of students. That is completely wrong.

You are not required to work in any role that IS NOT COVERED BY YOUR AREA OF CERTIFICATION. You are especially NOT to cover for laid off aides, clerks or counselors. Nor are you to emergency-sub for substitutes longer then for a day or two. By taking on these roles, you are aiding and abetting the NPS and opening yourself up to liability issues.

Feel free to call the NTU at 973-643-8430 with any questions or concerns you may have.

President’s Column

Pension Web Campaign Is Live

Dear PEC Members:

The website to solicit members to write their pension system board secretaries is now live. This is a joint project of PEC unions and other allied unions.  Working together as a coalition, we will have the most success in moving forward.

You can visit www.njaflcio.org to participate in the pension campaign and to urge pension plan members to demand that the board of their fund sue on their behalf as well. The campaign is the first story on our website. 

The NJEA is a coalition partner in this campaign and has volunteered to host this web campaign through their website.

Please take a few minutes to forward this link to your membership and ask them to send a letter to their appropriate pension board. The legal language is provided for you. You simply provide the requested information.

Thank you for your participation and please contact us if you have questions.

Dear Colleagues,

As the school year is winding down, we too are going through our end of the year checklist. According to the district, with this Friday's paycheck, you should also be receiving:

1) The second half of any stipend owed to staff who worked at a Renew, Turnaround, New, etc school.

2) Any remaining stipend money due to teachers on the old MA or PhD guide, or any other position where your salary stipend was not paid over the course of the year.

3) Any remaining money you are owed for waiving your health benefits.

We do not have dates yet for when staff will be getting their bonuses for being highly qualified or money they are owed for moving from Partially Effective to Effective. We will keep you updated when we have more information.

If there are any issues with your payments on Friday, please let us know immediately!
 

In Solidarity,

Joseph Del Grosso
