Must be nice to be a member of a union that explains what the hell is going on and is not selling out its members... comment at ICE Blog PSC PRESIDENT EXPLAINS RETIREE MEDICARE (DIS)ADVANTAGE MESS.
The information blackout by the UFT leadership, other than propaganda, has grown stark as the Jan. 1, 2022 deadline approaches for the withdrawal from Medicare for those who did not opt out, while those who did (like me) will be paying $190 extra a month for the same services they've been getting for free. Thanks.
Unity hacks are out there attacking those of us who see a medicare for all as the solution as being anti-union - BECAUSE WE OPPOSE PRIVATE INSURANCE THAT IS THE BIGGEST FACTOR IN COSTS? Go figure. It's like saying opposition to non-unionized charter schools is anti-union.
White Hat is a new pro Unity twitter trolling account, part of the leadership's DEFCOM 7 response.
Then there's this from a FB chat: Does the day come where Mulgrew echos Nixon: I'm not a crook!
And went with a plan that will net 23 million bucks
- November 5: the City sent its plan to cure deficiencies to counsel for the retirees.
- November 12: the City filed their plan with the court and, that evening, counsel for the retirees filed their objections to the plan.
- November 16 and 22: counsel for the retirees sent letters to the judge, accusing the city of violating the judge’s order.
- November 19 and 22: the City responded.
23: the court held a status conference regarding the plan. The judge
did not rule on the City’s plan to cure the deficiencies in the
MA+ implementation, scheduled
another status conference on December 8 and asked the parties to meet to resolve their differences in the meantime. That same evening, the City modified its proposed plan, asking the court to (a) dissolve the injunction by December 1 in order to allow the City to move forward with enrollment to be effective on January 1 and (b) adjourn the December 8 status conference. Counsel for the retirees responded the next day.
- November 29: the judge told the parties he does not plan to modify his October 21 order at this time.
