A Hotel California Scheme for NEA Affiliates

Here’s another example of forced unionism the National Education Association has devised.  In the past several local affiliates have successfully disaffiliated, but now the powers that be will attempt to head any disaffiliation efforts off at the pass.  Mike Antonucci has the story in the 74million.org.

Back in March, I reported on a bylaw proposed by the National Education Association board of directors that would establish a series of hurdles before a local affiliate could secede from the national union, as happened in Las Vegas and Memphis and has been attempted elsewhere.

Now, the board has another proposal, to be placed before delegates to the union’s representative assembly in July, that would add a nuclear option even if a local should manage to clear those hurdles: trusteeship.
