Liberal Heartache: Buffalo teacher's union will cut cosmetic surgery from next contract

This cut will potentially save Buffalo taxpayers $9 million a year. Unless teachers demand something else outrageous.

MyFoxNY reported:
The state-appointed authority overseeing Buffalo public school finances says taxpayer-covered cosmetic surgery rung up by the city's teachers totaled nearly $9 million in 2009.

The Buffalo Fiscal Stability Authority reports that last year's costs for such elective procedures as chemical peels and other skin treatments are up $8 million over the 2004 tab for cosmetic surgery provided under the teachers' union contract.


The president of the teachers' union says the union has agreed to give up the benefit in the next contract.
