Dear Dr. Fried and Mamk School Board members:
Bravo for not accepting the MTA’s empty gesture of concession.
Union members have to wake up and realize this is a different century, and 5% raises, free health care and full pensions are squeezing the taxpayers dry.
from the Mamaroneck School District, April 15:
MAMARONECK, NY, April 15 — After thoughtful consideration, Mamaroneck Schools today said it did not accept the Mamaroneck Teachers Association (MTA) proposal to take a salary freeze for the first three months of the 2010-2011 school year in exchange for a full two-year contract extension that would result in annual teacher raises averaging more than 5 % through 2013 under essentially identical contract terms teachers have today. District projections show that these teacher concessions, if accepted, would cause the tax rate to increase more than eight percent for each of the two contract extension years.
