Should the teachers in good conscience waive this part of their insurance? There is a lot of blame to go around but I'm not sure if this
specifically is part of the insurance plan as a whole or was this inserted through union negotiations..
"The sweet deal that all the 3,400 teachers in Buffalo are eligible to get under one of their insurance plan options, they are billed nothing for any
plastic surgery procedure, such as botox, liposuction, tummy tucks, and there is no deductible."
"BUFFALO, NY (CNN) -- As thousands of teachers face layoffs across the country, teachers in Buffalo, New York are getting lipo? Yep. And nose jobs
and whatever else they want. All on the taxpayers' dime. How is this happening? "
Yes a similiar post was made in 2010 by an ATS member...but it was worth repeating..notice the word negotiate..the union will not give up something
without getting something..
I love this part below, notice is typical union fashion and I know because I use to be VP of my local..
"Do you feel as a gesture of good faith, the union should say, teachers, no more free plastic surgery?" Rumore responds, "It would be a wonderful
gesture of good faith. We're willing to give it up. All the district has to do is come to the table and negotiate with us. But not willing to do it
