Madison school district reaches agreement with union to screw taxpayers
Then they held hands and lit cigars with $100 bills to celebrate. The teachers union and the Madison School District have reached a contract agreement, with the two sides taking advantage of the temporary suspension of Act 10 by Judge Juan Colas.
In a statement released Wednesday night, Superintendent Jane Belmore said the contract provides assurances to teachers and staff by maintaining the current salary schedule and benefits, giving the district the ability to raise base wages depending on its financial outlook and by limiting the district’s ability to increase employee contributions to health insurance.
“…limiting the district’s ability to increase employee contributions to health insurance.” In other words, screw you taxpayers. We got ours.
Remember when the unions lied during the debate over Act 10, claiming that they actually support contributing more for their health insurance at the levels Governor Scott Walker wanted but Act 10 wasn’t necessary to accomplish that goal?
