The bosses of the UFT are out of control... James Eterno, at ICEUFT Blog: UFT SPENDING OUR MONEY ON FRIVOLOUS CEASE AND DESIST LETTER WHILE THE RULING UNITY CAUCUS USES THE LOGO
|Message to UFT/Unity/Stroock - so sue me|
Maybe I'm not so union proud today. Did you know I can be sued by my own union's high priced law firm, Stroock (Randy's old firm before she became a "teacher") for posting the logo above on this blog? You know, a logo paid for with my union dues which I have been paying since 1967. So go ahead and sue me - I'd love a case of the UFT suing its own members for promoting the union. Authoritarianism run amuck -- is DeSantis running the UFT?
They act like little mice when it comes to fighting the city or abusive principals, so like any bully they pick on teachers. We've said it often over the years -- the UFT/Unity leadership is more aligned with the bosses than its own members.
A bunch of us in the opposition had an LOL moment when we heard about the threats from the UFT/Unity leadership have made against the MORE Caucus for using the UFT - get this - trademarked logo - during the recent contract campaign - a campaign the union urged people to bring to their chapters. Note the footnoted reference to Ed Notes on the bottom of page 1.
If this was an issue why not just mention it to MORE people at an ex bd meeting or DA and ask for it to be removed, which as far as I'm concerned they don't have to do. This is just another example of an attempt to intimidate and suppress opposition voices to Unity -which we've seen at Ex Bd meetings at times this year - a classic act of authoritarians. How much did getting Stroock involved cost us in union dues?
