Career Center: Help for laid-off members

Source: NYSUT United

NYSUT members who've been laid off due to the state's budget crisis are encouraged to visit our Career Center at http://www.nysut.org/cps/rde/xchg/nysut/hs.xsl/careers.htm.

There, you will find the "NYSUT Handbook for Laid-Off and Entrenched Employees," which has the most up-to-date information about maintaining your union membership, health and retirement benefits, applying for unemployment insurance and being recalled for vacancies.

The Career Center is also home to an array of job-search links for pre-K thru 12, higher education and SRP positions.

And, there's information on the many ways NYSUT is fighting for its members, as well as the latest breaking news on the education industry — including the federal Education Jobs bill and how it impacts New York.
