NYC Teacher Contract to be Signed for 9 Years

A billion dollar contract is about to get signed between the NYC teacher’s union and the governmental setup of Mayor Bill de Blasio. Things had been pending since the previous Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s tenure. The union expects $3 billion in payback. 

The pays would increase by 8% and yearly raises amounting to 2% would be normal fare on the contract. And healthcare would figure in the mix. 

Anonymous government sources were quoted as saying that the plan was still in its early phases and would be revealed in City Hall. De Blasio had finished the preliminary talks with the teachers’ union. 

However, there are hints of a few hitches along the way in matters of negotiations. The other unions have their issues. And as for the teachers’ union, it wants more than just peanuts in the form of pay increases. 

One teachers’ union official said: “We’re just finalizing the language. It could be very soon.”

The United Federation of Teachers has a hundred thousand teachers that come under its rubric. The previous mayor had flat out denied any payments to offset the low salaries. 

But Mayor Bill de Blasio is more softhearted and he is willing to strike a bargain that will benefit the formers of character. This deal would set the stage for other unions to get their conditions complied with to boot.

All the way until 2018 the deal will remain operational. In the capacity of secondary parental figures, teachers have the right to demand greater pay packages. 

This plea has been pending since a long time. But now at least in the developed countries this request for raises is being paid some heed. Only a satisfied person can truly satisfy children or teenagers who are willing to learn on an intellectual and emotional basis. 

And we all remember the stuff taught to us by inspirational teachers. The only difference is inspiration doesn’t come for free. You have to be financially secure in order to be psychologically fit enough to groom and motivate the youngsters of this age and time.
