NTU RETIRED EMPLOYEES ALERT!!!Dear Members: “...There is no denying the fact that New Jersey retired public employees and currently employed are being attacked by forces hell bent on destroying a pension system that has served New Jersey residents and public employees since 1922 and for teachers since 1919. Mr. Christie is spending the summer kicking sand in the face of all NJ retirees and those still employed by trying to sell yet another pension reform package...” To read the entire story click here.
Now is the time to stand up to the Governor, his handlers and financial backers. You can do this by joining NJRPEO. Help us continue to build an organization that can stop the attacks on public employees and save your pension. To join is free and easy!

NTU Organization Update
Union Brothers and Sisters: It has been a very busy summer and the NTU Organization has been effective and persistent in providing representative services to our members. Eugene Liss the NTU legal Counsel has been instrumental in successfully litigating tenure cases. We have also been involved and working very closely with the Education Law Center and Newark Community Groups in fighting the OneNewark Plan. The list goes on and includes filing PERC charges, Peer Oversight Committee appeals, tenure rights, state evaluation process and pay owed members.
Please read and share this NJSPOTLIGHT article for which we modestly take credit...”the last thing we want is a teacher’s status affected by a district that doesn’t want to carry this out appropriately....”

ALL 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.
