Sykes Says Teachers Unions Have Greater Power Than Mob Bosses
About 11:16 a.m., lead AM 620 WTMJ radio talker Charlie Sykes said because teachers unions have the power to shut down schools, their power exceeds that of all organizations in the country, even that of organized crime.
And you wonder what kind of beating teachers continue to take in Wisconsin.
My mom would have said that this guy was "sick in the head" and told me to pray for him.
Take a look at the New Berlin article. Teachers slammed the school board with good reason.
“It is almost impossible for us to get our heads around the idea of no union,” said Miles Turner, executive director of the Wisconsin Association of School District Administrators. He said the association has called for changes to the collective bargaining law but does not favor its elimination.Turner said a lack of collective bargaining would dramatically change what is now an established and mostly smooth working relationship between administrators and teachers.
The potential disruption of a peaceful workplace may be one of the most threatening aspects of the possible loss of collective bargaining, said Dennis Dresang, emeritus professor of political science and public affairs at UW-Madison.
“Research shows that there is almost always inherent and inevitable conflict between workers and management,” Dresang said. “The major reason why collective bargaining occurs is because of this conflict. We’ve gone for so many years now with basically labor peace that I think people don’t have a good appreciation for collective bargaining.”
Bauman agreed and added that it would be difficult for any worker to return to a job where they were unsure about details such as workload or overtime. Under Walker’s proposal, public employees would only be able to bargain on salary, though the bill was amended to provide workers with a grievance process.
“I quite honestly can’t imagine what it would be like for teachers or any other public employees,” Bauman said. “It’s hard to describe what it’s like when you work in an employment situation where you don’t know the rules from one day to the next.”
It's obvious from his statement that he knows very little about either.
he's no goodfella, that's for sure.
Why are teachers a main target of attack on public employee rights?
It is part of the 'divide and conquer' strategy to weaken the public education system, so that the almighty private sector can take-over the education system. Private education institutions cannot compete with public education as the system now stands. To gain a greater market share, or majority market share, private education proponents must weaken, or destroy the public education system.
