What is Chancellor Potty Mouth doing in Denver?????

Rhee in Denver: Media to Blame for Teachers’ Contract Holdup

It is the first week of school, Chancellor Potty Mouth needs to be in Washington DC, not the Democratic National Convention.

Rhee is the one holding up the contract. She needs to put the contract up on the DCPS website where it could be downloaded and studied by the membership. She won’t do that, which leads some of us to conclude it must be a pretty bad contract.

    I think it’s the union’s job to post a contract for all to see and discuss. Why hasn’t the union done this??? Oh, right. Because there are a few powerful members of the union who don’t want others to see the contract and vote on it. They are afraid we will like what we see, so they would rather make the decision for us.

    I think it is the union’s responsibility to post a possible contract on their website and let us review it and vote on it.

    No, it isn’t the union’s job to post a contract to a website or anywhere else that hasn’t been fully negotiated. When an agreement is reached, it’s the union’s responsibility to bring it to the membership for a vote. If you like the contract and it’s provisions, VOTE YES, if you don’t like it and want more or less, VOTE NO.

    And until that time, if you have problems, issues or angst with it, tell your building representatives and the executive board.

    Presenting multiple possible contracts defeats the purpose of having a union represent its membership.

    As for RHEE and FENTY, WTF are they doing on an anti-union panel in Denver? Especially Fenty?
