The Coalition of Detroit Public Schools Unions has devised a two-point strategic plan to fight the district's proposed health care changes.
The Coalition requested a meeting with Darnell Earley, Emergency Manager, to discuss our opposition to the district's proposal. Mr. Earley responded, indicating he would meet to hear our concerns and counter health care proposal.
The Coalition met with a health care consultant. The consultant will assist the coalition with a counter proposal to the district that would not pass on any additional cost to our members.
We are asking our members to provide their union leaders with personal email addresses and telephone numbers in the event we need to have an informational rally for proposed union actions.
