VOTE/COPE 2016 Campaign

VOTE/COPE contributions are now being accepted for the 2016 campaign. Payroll deduction is the easiest way to contribute — do it once and your contribution is made automatically every year. Every little bit helps the fight to keep our rights and jobs through Political Action at the state and local levels. Sign up for a $1 — less than a cup of coffee — that is a small price to pay to have a strong voice.

Payroll deductions are for ten pay periods starting the first pay period in January. Simply fill out and return the VOTE-COPE Payroll Deduction Form and return to Kim Blandings. If you need more information, please see your Building Representatve or contact Kim Blandings .


TA Contract 2016 - 2019

Contract MOA November 14, 2019

General Information

Certification: Remember it is the member's responsibility to keep their certification up to date. You can access information on Teaching Assistants certification on the NY State Education Web Site or use the links on the NTA and Teacher Center web sites.

District email: Warning! Do not use the District's e-mail system for union or personal business! You should expect that any message sent or received through the District's system will be read by the administration. In the case of Baynes v. Fairport CSD (Monroe County), the court held that a public employer can be required to honor a request made under NY's Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) for copies of e-mails sent or received through the public employer's server (The Edge, Dec. '07).

Grievance Procedure: Please go to your Building Rep. first whenever you have a question or concern. You should know your contract and the area that pertains to your question or concern. The Building Rep. will then go with you to the Head Delegate if the problem or concern is a possible grievance. The correct forms will be filled out and be sent to the grievance committee.

Member Information Update: If your personal information (divorce, marriage, beneficiaries, address, phone number, etc.) has changed, please remember to update your TRS information and fill out and return the Membership Update Form to the NTA Office.

Sick Bank: Contributing to the Sick Bank entitles you to apply to the Sick Bank if it is necessary. To apply to the Sick Bank, send a letter accompanied with medical documentation (Doctor's letter), to Human Resources and Pat Favata at Vails Gate.
