Message Regarding Payment of the Ratification Bonus
| || |
As you come to the end of this school year we both wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for all your hard work and dedication. We both know from experience how difficult the work you do is, and we take great pride in the thousands of people in New York City Public Schools who work hard each and every day to try to fulfill the dreams and hopes of over one million students. We want you to know you have our respect and our thanks.
We wanted to do more than tell you we appreciate your hard work - we wanted to take action to show you. So we have taken the first step in implementing the financial component of the recent collective bargaining agreement between the United Federation of Teachers and the New York City Department of Education which provides for a one time ratification bonus of $1,000 (pro-rated for part-time employees) to be issued to any member who was on payroll as of the date of ratification, June 3, 2014. We are pleased to inform you that pending the ratification by the Panel for Educational Priorities on June 24th, for most school-based UFT staff this payment is going to appear in either your direct deposit account on June 25th, or in a check delivery scheduled for June 26th. Other UFT staff such as nurses and therapists should receive this payment on July 3, and part time F status staff should be receiving their pro-rated portion on July 10.
We hope you enjoy the summer and return refreshed and ready for the next school year. We have much to work on together, including efforts around enhanced professional development and dedicated time for parent engagement, and we look forward to working together on these and many other initiatives next year. Thank you for your work this year to provide a quality education for all of our students to keep them on the road to success.
