From every paycheck our union takes $47.27.
What are we getting for this?
The union is running ads on prime time television showing an art teacher in a well equipped room working with two students. Is this reality? I think not. How does this commercial improve my working conditions? Doesn't a lie like this feed into Bloomberg and Klein's Keep It Going NYC Public Schools campaign? Doesn't this support them instead of us?
The union is running worthless and insulting workshops for ATRs. These bright, intelligent and experienced people being told they cannot find a job because of what they are doing, not because of how the union sold them out. My dues is being used for this nonsense too.
I know we need a union but, we need a union that works for us, not against us. The UFT of today is not that union.
Thanks to Mrs. Tsouris, the inspiration for this post.
