Quotation of the Day 9/5/2011

Could New York City's teachers see a new contract sometime in the near future?  The Chief Leader thinks it might be possible.   

United Federation of Teachers President Mike Mulgrew, whom Mayor Bloomberg may owe for allowing him to save face by offering concessions that helped avoid massive Teacher layoffs, is hoping to parlay that good will into a long-overdue wage contract that would give his members the same two 4-percent raises received by other workers before the Mayor reined in spending. Funding for such raises hasn’t been budgeted, and an exceedingly cheap state contract deal might make it tougher politically for Mr. Bloomberg to honor the bargaining pattern, though the UFT leader said, "There could be ways to do this, but it’s going to require willingness on both sides."
