140 teacher retirement requests approved
The emeritus program gives one full year’s salary paid over three years. That is in addition to pension benefits. In return, the retiree provides 10 days of service to the district each year during that time. The emeritus program is something that has been negotiated into the teachers’ contract through collective bargaining.
To put it into an easier to understand way, Public School Teachers in Green Bay can retire, join an “emeritus program,” and earn a full years pay for working 30 days over 3 years. I kid you not, this is a real program, and 140 Green Bay teachers have applied this year.
Now, State Senate Democrats are defending this sort of collective bargaining, where no one is on the side of the taxpayer!
