A View Of Teachers Unions With Which The Unions Themselves Would Not Agree

The video is 13:38 long, and I agree with the vast majority of it. The Center for Union Facts has done a great job here.

If you're a California teacher and you agree with the points made in this video, you should visit the web site of the California Teachers Empowerment Network and consider joining.

Hi! I am a teacher in San Diego who is very much a republican and just frustrated with being an agency payer. I recently got a letter from CTA reminding me that if I get a pink slip this year, I won't get any assistance from them and if I join they are willing to help me fight for my job. In my opinion, the letter was somewhat of a threat. I am thrilled to find your blog and more information about the AAE which I will be joining. I will also be resigning from the union in hopes to get some of my agency fees back. Thanks so much for posting this wonderful information!

They may not go above and beyond for you, but given seniority rules, you'll still get "basic" protection from them because they'll fight to defend seniority as defined by your contract.

Their pettiness, though, knows no bounds.

Welcome to my blog! I hope you stick around and become a regular reader.
