You seem to have so much invested in being weirdly self-righteously rude to me for some reason, I hesitate to respond, but for any passer-by who may take you seriously, I will.
1. I’m not trying to teach anyone about unions. I’ve merely shared my experiences.
2. I prefer the idea the teacher organizers explained to me, more so than the union experience I had. That’s just my opinion. We’ll continue rallying and protesting and calling out when it’s in our best interests, but for now, it looks like forming an official union isn’t better than what we’re currently doing.
3. What I add to the mix is financial support—showing up—and the same support all the other teachers offer.
