The UFT's efforts on behalf of 37,000 UFT members who had to put up with the headaches and frustration of logging data about students with disabilities into the Special Education Student Information System because of the DOE’s failure to address the digital tracking system’s flaws have resulted in a $33 million settlement.
UFT-represented employees who averaged more than five minutes per week of SESIS use between January 2013 and June 2016 will receive payment for their work in SESIS on the Sept. 29 payroll (for in-service employees on the Q bank) or the Oct. 6 payroll (for in-service employees on the H bank). Retirees will receive their check via a supplementary payoll.
