How have unions helped teaching as a profession?

Our union in MN develops and hosts some very good PD. They also lobby at the state level for public school funding issues. They support districts that have referendums up for vote by providing resources and tools to gain community support.

I want out. Our Union is nothing but a political machine spending my dues on policies and candidates I don't agree with.

Sounds like you need new people in charge of the union in your district so that your voice is being heard. The union is only as strong as its weakest member.

Unfortunately we have to fight for decent wages and treatment. That’s what our union is for.

If it weren’t for the union in our school district we would not: have planning time, have a school-year calendar agreed upon by both admin and teachers, receive our raises (we have had to picket often and only the union is protecting us at that time), and wouldn’t have many rules in place to protect us from overreach by admin.

Technically, Walker disbanned teachers unions power and it is illegal to go on strike in Wisconsin as well.......

Wow!

I need some help. The distance learning model that has been implemented to my district has been intense by my district. I am part of the union and I was upset the superintendent was going to ask the principals for feedback on the model. I spoke up in my meeting and said that they should be heading directly from the teachers but they don’t know how. I suggested a survey which was approved but they don’t know how to make one. SMH 🤦‍♂️

If yes, what should be my expectations?

Also, say if I get another offer, will it be okay to say No to the previous offer? I mean they trusted me and gave more than expectation earlier.

I again ask the questions. Whats the value of keeping the union together? We have a radical fundamentalist minority who contributes little to nothing but get to make choices on behalf and against the wishes of the majority of the country.

Whats the value for states like New York, Illinois, and California to remain in an union with states like Kentucky, Missisipi, and Missouri?
