NEA 2018 Convention Tidbits

Mike Antonucci keeps us up to date on what’s happening at NEA’s annual convention.  The “Fan Club” proposal has gone down in flames.   It seems NEA members are not hot about letting “community allies” in, Janus decision or not.

A constitutional amendment that would have established a “community ally” category fell just short (61%) of achieving the necessary two-thirds majority.

This is the 4th time in the last 12 years such a measure has failed to win the approval of NEA delegates. Union leaders lobbied heavily for passage this time.
