Chicago Teachers Union Forgets the Veterans on Veterans Day

Unions were needed at one time because of employer abuse, just look at China, but they are not needed now. Now they are only after control. The Hostess Company is closing several factories due to strikes. What is the strike proving? How to lose a job? People buy Hostess because they want to, not because they need to. Strikes are a losing game.

Companies should relocate their factories to right-to-work states like South Carolina and Texas. Of course, then the NLRB would get into the act like it did with Boeing. It's no wonder that private sector unions are losing members. Public sector unions (any union whose members are employed by a government entity (teachers, police, firefighters, civil service [USPO, etc.] should be outlawed.

It has been proven over and over again that the teachers' unions care more for what goes in the unions' and the union members' pockets than what happens to the students.

On Monday, November 12th (the observed Veterans Day), the Chicago Teachers Union organized a protest, not to honor vets, but to protest school closures. Ironically, all Chicago Public Schools were closed that day to supposedly honor military veterans who served our nation.

While the union forgot to bring American flags to honor those vets, they did have plenty of socialist, communists and other radicals in the ranks.


Judging by the resistance of union activists to answer simple questions, it’s unlikely EAGnews will be on the CTU’s Christmas – oops, we mean winter holiday card list.
