Our union negotiated that all of us have a job through 20-21

I do think unions are taking a stance but the reality is that if there are no jobs or minimal jobs do people still get paid the same salary for teachers perhaps a Classroom can be set up but are they going to work 6 1/2 seven hours a day in front of a computer with classified employees to do noon duty or campus security how are you going to continue to pay them if the kids aren’t at school I’m doing summer school right now from 8 to 12. 20minute segments each With from 1 to 3 students in each zoom group teaching phonics very intense I have to tell you I’m exhausted but I’m still only working four hours plus an additional hour of prep

New York is known for having a solid union but I have little faith in them stepping up to protect us. It’s really hard for us to strike here but I feel like we need to do something like that to show our stance on how most of us feel it’s unsafe to go back.

We have unions and we are all working hard to stay protected. I think it’s strange when people refer to their union as “they”. Every member IS the union so if you think “they” aren’t doing their job...who is “they” and what are you doing?

Yes, I believe my union has our backs. We are not perfect, but without our solidarity in protecting our members, it would be an even worse nightmare.

I am very thankful for my union. They are working hard to protect us. Could they be stronger? Yes they could be stronger but we are easily manipulated because we are shamed or guilted into being the save all for society. Teachers are an easy target when it comes to the blame game. I have seen private schools in my area that are totally taken advantage of because they don’t have those safe guards. So, I’m thankful for the hard work of our union leaders.

So, with the whole SCOTUS thing being done. 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?
