The UFT lobbied, and Hochel signed what union leaders couldn't achieve through negotiations for over 60 years, namely reduced class sizes. A winner for the union on many fronts as the staffing membership will grow and less space will be available for charter schools and their classrooms. But wait- there's more! It is an unfunded state mandate that the city will have to pay for. Where do you think those hundreds of million dollars will come from? If you guessed health care give yourself a pat on the back. MA plan for retirees and reduced benefits for actives.
