Courier editorial: Flier is confusing

From today's Courier Times editorial page . . .

Thumbs Down

To the Neshaminy teachers union for the confusing flier it circulated to homes in the school district.

The flier claims that the union has "offered to contribute to teacher health care plans," saving the district "$2.8 million annually." This is either a "major step" forward, according to the school board president, or "designed to confuse the public."

We don't know which because our reporter has been unable to get a clarification from the union, despite repeated attempts.

As far as we know, the union negotiators have not budged from their insistence on continued free health insurance for its members. If they have, as the board president said, it's a "major step." We implore the union to explain.

Don't hold your breath Mr. Petroziello. We've been waiting for an explanation for 3 years now. .
