Weingarten delivers the goods: Tim Daly of NTP - A frequent critic praises the union head for backing bold reforms

UPDATED: Mon, July 5, 9:30pm

What else is there to say when both Michelle Rhee and Tim Daly praise Weingarten for delivering the goods. The "goods" are the heads of rank and file teachers on a platter.

David - if you read this deliver the goods - Randi's head on Salome receiving John the Baptist.

Addendum:
Off to Seattle tomorrow morn to do battle with the forces of evil.

Contrast to the NEA- I was shocked when a close colleague over 40 years said yesterday- maybe there should be a movement away from the AFT towards the NEA. I'm not totally convinced but given the lock-down Unity holds over the AFT/UFT what's to lose?

  1. inside the Unity caucus:

    Mulgrew is now the referee between BRONX REP JOSE VARGAS AND STAF DIRECTOR LEROY BARR TO DIVVY UP D.O.E. JOBS- THEY ARE FIGHTING LIKE CATS OVER WHETHER BLACKS OR LATINOS SHOULD GET THE $150,000 JOBS THAT KLEIN IS OFFERING THEM SO THEY STAY QUIET ABOUT david PAKTER AND IRIS BLIGE AND BRONX HS OF SCIENCE.
    THERE ARE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS AT STAKE FOR BARR AND VARGAS -TO HELL WITH THE DUES PAYING MEMBERS WHO GET SOLD OUT.
    THIS IS WHAT MULGREW HAS BEEN UP TO- IT IS A TRAGEDY FOR PEOPLE LIKE PAKTER.
    THE UNION PAPER HAD NO STORY ON JFK HS- SEE DAILY NEWS -ABOUT THE CORRUPT PRINCIPAL WHO SENT CHAPTER LEADER MARIA COLON TO THE RUBBER ROOM FOR REPORTING THE THEFT OF SCHOOL MONEY. SHE WAS TOTALLY EXONERATED AT HER 3020a- LIKE PAKTER- THEN WAS SENT BACK TO THE RUBBER ROOM.
    MULGREW AND HIS FLUNKIES ARE ONLY INTERESTED IN GETTING JOBS FOR THEIR "FRIENDS" (LET'S FIND OUT HOW CLOSE THESE "FRIENDS" ARE).
    ALSO, BARR GAVE ONE OF THE MOST CROOKED LABOR LEADERS IN NEW YORK- VERONICA COSTA AT D.C.37- AN AWARD SO HE COULD GET JOBS FOR HIS ARMY OF ASS KISSERS.
    KEEP YOUR EYE ON FUTURE SELL OUTS BY MULGREW, WHO IS ONE BIG HORSE'S ASS WHO IS AFRAID OF THE MAYOR. NO BALLS MULGREW -THAT IS WHAT THE UNITY CAUCUS CALLS HIM BEHIND HIS BACK.

    at least WEINGARTEN COULD OCCasionally -by accident- do the right thing.
    mulgrew wants to be a player- he brags to members about how many "important" people call him.
    hey mike- that is fine but where are the raises bloomberg allegedly promised so we could screw long time UFT supporter Bill Thompson, like we did to Carl McCall?

  2. Norm,
    Say more about moving away from the AFT/moving toward NEA. What would that look like?
