Today Mayor Jimmy Davis released the following statement regarding the disbursement of funds to provide Bayonne teachers their retro checks:
“Over the last few days, I’ve been in constant contact with Bayonne School Board President William Lawson regarding the disbursement of retro checks to Bayonne teachers. Mr. Lawson has assured me that – at the very latest – all retro checks will be released by next week, marking Wednesday, December 10, as the estimated date of disbursement.
“This process certainly has not been perfect. However, the outcome will remain the same: Bayonne’s hardworking teachers will receive the compensation they were guaranteed via the newly negotiated contract.”
