Do Unions Speak for Their Members?
Another gem from Mike Antonucci’s 2015 collection of quotes on public education. The quote vividly illustrates why Rebecca Friedrichs and many other teachers are forced to join or support a labor union in order to get or keep a job. While the case lies with the Supreme Court, things remain static. When unions speak for their members they will not have to compel membership and support.
“Lily Garcia should be replaced as president. This is the worst kind of union leadership, to go out there and make an endorsement – to even threaten an endorsement – without checking out what your members are saying.” – Liberal commentator Ed Schultz, reacting to NEA’s endorsement of Hillary Clinton (September 30 YouTube)
