AFT President Randi Weingarten appeared on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" television show to make the case for teachers' due process rights, to correct widely held misconceptions about the teaching workforce, and to clarify that problems tied to evaluation are often mislabeled as due process issues.
AFT convention delegates unanimously passed a special order of business—recommended by the executive council—to fight back against attacks on unions and teachers like Vergara v. California and Harris v. Quinn, and to fight forward to reclaim the promise of America.
AFT President Randi Weingarten kicked off the AFT national convention in Los Angeles by outlining a bold plan to both fight back and fight forward to reclaim the promise of America and create economic and educational opportunity for all.
While the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the importance of collective bargaining and unions to families and communities in its ruling in Harris v. Quinn, let's be clear that working people, who have aspired to the middle class and tried to make a better life for their families, have taken it on the chin for years, AFT President Randi Weingarten says.
