Unity Caucus: 15 Minutes From Destruction
Unity Caucus members were quick to give President Mike Mulgrew credit for delaying the orbit long enough for the meteor to pass by going to court and suing Mayor Bloomberg over closing schools, an act that slowed down time but will not delay the closings. Inside the UFT there were mixed feelings as the meteor landing would have been the only way to stop this year's school closing agenda.
"The fact that so many in our union take what we have for granted is proof that the UFT does a great job. Those union dues go a long way," said Unity Caucus member John Bartley who was quick to blame MORE for not doing enough to deflect the meteor.
