Stops cuts of teachers’ benefits in Philadelphia!

Judge Nina Wright Padilla of the Court of Common Pleas issued a temporary injunction Oct. 20 barring the School Reform Commission from making changes to Philadelphia public school teachers’ health care plans.  After walking away from the negotiations table in July, the SRC unilaterally cancelled the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers’ union contract on Oct. 6.

The SRC immediately began slashing teacher health care benefits. This injunction prevents the health care plan changes from going into effect until courts determine the legality of SRC’s cancellation of the contract. An SRC spokesperson announced plans to appeal the injunction ruling.
