Union Official Agrees With Mark Janus
Michael Thulen agrees with Mark Janus. Thulen is president of American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, (AFSCME) Local 3790 in New Jersey.
One, be accountable. Last week, the New Jersey Senate held hearings over some recently uncovered videos of New Jersey Education Association leaders who appeared to be bragging about their success at protecting the jobs of NJEA teachers who abused students and engaged in other illegal behaviors. Unfortunately, these NJEA leaders were not acting in a vacuum. Unions shouldn’t just be responsive when these situations come to light. They should be the first to call for immediate disciplinary action, investigations, and comprehensive cultural reform within their institution.
