The UFT is filing a union-initiated grievance over the rate of pay for members participating in enVisionmath curriculum training this summer.
When members registered for the training, the posting indicated they would receive the per-session rate of $51.13 per hour. However, the city Department of Education is now stating that these members will instead receive the staff development rate of $23.30 per hour.
“Members have a right to get what they signed up for,” UFT Secretary LeRoy Barr said, “and we are going to fight to see that they get it.”
The training was open to common branch teachers.
