Do you think teacher unions are gaining in power and/or popularity?

For teachers, a job held overwhelmingly by women, I believe unions are the only reason we have any rights at all. Our unions have systematically been stripped of their power in the last thirty years, as the campaign by government officials, who think we are glorified babysitters, has ruined education by both discounting us while blaming us for its ills. The only way we will get respect now is if we collectively demand it, and unions are the best vehicle to do that.

My state doesn’t even have them so for me no. And people in my state act like the world will crumble if we ever unionize.

that's a shame. Don't they know the history of unions and what they've done for workers? how they protect workers today? it's the only reason we have rights!

Hearing about the ridiculous demands from the LA teachers union... Is anyone else frustrated with how political teaching has become? I'm not sure that I would teach at all if it was required to join the union. So sick of the pressure to back certain candidates, walk-outs, and viewpoints. My district has a negotiating body affiliated with the NEA, but it's voluntary to be a member. I'm glad to live in a state with options.

What would it take for us to become unionized? When will we push for this? We need unions to protect our hours or demand overtime pay for time over 60 hrs a week. What do you think, or know that's in the works?

How do you legally handle having your plan time taken for the 4th week in a row? Each day each week,, an announcement comes on saying it has been canceled and we have to keep our students.

How can I legally fight for my time without union backing?
