Exposing the Adams/Mulgrew Threat to Our Healthcare: Untangling the Confusion- Retiree Advocate - Sunday Nov. 6, 7PM
#Mulgrewcare run amuck - stop the madness!!!! Join Retiree Advocate's Zoom event to untangle the confusion.
Retiree Advocate is doing a Zoom, Sunday, Nov. 6, at 7 PM to address questions people may have and to expose the confusion created by the joint operation of the city and some of the unions, led by Mulgrew in the UFT and DC 37, the largest components who dominate the MLC (Municipal Labor Committee) who make deals with the city that control our health care. We may not have all the answers but we have some answers. We are hoping to have Marianne Pizzitola join us, but if she can't make it, we have some knowledgeable people.
MORE is planning another zoom in the same issue a week later at the same time and Marianne is definitely going to be there.
Exposing the Adams/Mulgrew Threat to Our Healthcare: Untangling the Confusion
This Sunday, Nov 6 at 7 PM, Retiree Advocate/UFT is holding a Zoom Info Meeting to share what we know - and what we don't know - regarding the current healthcare crisis in our unions.
Learn what role Mulgrew and other union leaders in the MLC have been playing in partnership with Mayor Adams and the Office of Labor Relations.
New information is coming in constantly and we are trying to stay up to date. This meeting will share info & analysis, and try to answer your questions.
Attendance will be limited to 100. The meeting will be recorded for those who cannot make it.
Here are some comments I gleaned from some of the listserve discussions after a district rep sent out an appeal to chapter leaders to get their staff to call the city council to change the admin code. As Jonathan says in his current blog: Administrative Code 12-126 – Line by line:
The code today means:
“The City pays an amount equal to the cost of HIP”
The code if the Mulgrew/Nespoli/Adams amendment goes through will say:
The City pays the cost of HIP, and no more than that, or else some other amount – and that amount could be different for different groups of city workers, and there is no limit on how low those amounts might be.
When you call your city council member, please explain this to them as you urge them to protect workers and retirees, and reject the amendment.
