The Big Laugh: UFT Strategy is to Organize Teachers at Charter Schools

When this was brought up at the Labor Notes Troublemakers School on Saturday, every UFT'er in the room laughed.

Like, if a KIPP teacher asked you about organizing the teachers at their school to have the UFT represent them, what would you tell them?

After hearing FMPR president Rafael Feliciano speak over the weekend, I would tell them to have the FMPR in Puerto Rico be their bargaining agent.

More later...

Organized labor, as practiced by the current leadership of the UFT, is an oxymoron.

The UFT cannot even organize a plan to help the ATR teachers. What are they talking about??

Randi Weingarten and her half-a-million in yearly compensation lives in a different universe from the people she purports to speak for. She has gained entre into the arena where they experiment with the lives of working teachers and their students for fun and profit.

Expect absolutely nothing from her or the other labor aristocrats.
