According to the union-member mom in this video (she also comes from a family of union members) she is not anti-union. However, this proud union member is a mother first and, in New York, there is a union that is trying to hurt her children.
Both the United Federation of Teachers and NAACP have filed a lawsuit that puts her children's future education (and the future of 7,000 other New York children) in dire jeopardy--just as schools are set to open in a few more weeks. Last month's lawsuit seeks to stop New York from closing 22 horribly failing schools and allowing for 17 charter schools to operate.
The UFT and NAACP likely thought there would be no backlash as they threw 7,000 kids' futures under the bus. However, as they're beginning to learn--in the face of a union's actions against children, even a union card only goes so far...
The UFT and the NAACP are on the wrong side in this argument.
It's time they stood up for the interests of the children, rather than union dues and political allegiances.
The UFT and NAACP need to drop the lawsuit and let these children have a chance at achieving success.
