Dear President Weingarten and AFT staff:
I am an AFT Member and I am demanding that the Washington Teachers' Union hold elections immediately and restore WTU's General Vice President, Nathan Saunders salary and position. Only the WTU/AFT Constitution should be able to determine when local union elections take place. It is my understanding that the AFT has postponed DC elections and I believe this to be unfair. Members pay dues money to the AFT which should entitle them the right to vote in a timely manner. The AFT must demand that the WTU to do the right thing.
