Chicago PeopleSoft Problems Prompt ULP

The Chicago Teachers Union has filed an Unfair Labor Practice (ULP) charge against the Chicago Public Schools over its failure to address paycheck problems caused by the switch to PeopleSoft.

Six months after payroll problems began cheating some Chicago teachers out of timely and complete paychecks, the Chicago Teachers Union has filed an unfair labor practice charge against the Chicago Public Schools.

The union says CPS is reneging on its promise to make teachers whole who were shortchanged by glitches in the payroll system that came online last spring. Since April, the CTU has filed nearly 600 grievances over paycheck problems.

And it looks as if things will only get worse:

But a new payroll problem is looming. The CTU ratified a new contract Sept. 10, but the 4 percent raises won't kick in until at least December, Vaughn said. He blames PeopleSoft plus extra time needed to implement a complicated contract.
