NEA Officials to Raise their Own Salaries Amidst Drastic Budget Cuts
So much for corporate greed. NEA teacher union officials will get hefty raises while cutting their budgets elsewhere. Mike Antonucci has the story in the74million.org.
We reported exclusively in May that the National Education Association planned to cut $50 million from its budget, anticipating that it would lose 300,000 members in the wake of a Supreme Court decision ruling agency fees unconstitutional.
NEA and its affiliates had money problems before the Supreme Court ruling. Their ability to adapt to a new environment depends less on their political and organizing skills and more on their willingness to reform themselves financially. They are not off to a good start.
