UFT Supporting TWU Rally: Mon 12/19 4PM 3rd Av & 41st St

From the UFT Blog: Edwize » Supporting TWU

"We will be joining our brothers and sisters at a rally in support of the Transport Workers Union, Local 100 at 4:00 p.m. on Monday, December 19th at 633 3rd Avenue at 41st Street. We hope to see you all at the rally. If you have a blog consider posting this information for your NYC readers."

It is indeed nice to see our leadership so vigilent towards the TWU. Too bad they didn't have the same concern when they were supposed to be working for us. No comments are allowed on the above UFT blog- Edwise. As usual, they are silencing any possible unflattering comments. Interesting...

Good luck to the TWU. May they fare better than us! If they don't, it won't be because their leadership sold them out. My entire time in the UFT, the message was always to just take care of the senior members since eventually the new teachers will become senior too. And the last contract certainly did not help the new or future teachers any. It is interesting to note that that Toussant repeatedly said, "This contract will not be settled on the backs of new hires and TWU 100 will not “sell the unborn." How do you respond to that Randi?

Here's hoping for a better life for transit workers!

Consider reposting the info, but don't consider posting invideous comparisons between the UFT and the TWU, because Edwize is not permitting comments.

God forbid they should let teachers say what they really think.
