The Journal Sentinel recently ran a story about the Kenosha Teachers Union being decertified.
The union representing Kenosha teachers has been decertified and may not bargain base wages with the district.
Because unions are limited in what they can do even if they are certified, the new status of Kenosha's teachers union — just like the decertification of many other teachers unions in the state that did not or could not pursue the steps necessary to maintain certification in the new era of Act 10 — may be a moral blow more than anything else.
This made the righties giddy....Mark Belling even thought he got a big scoop here and Mcgyver was pissed they didnt make up the story first. Yet lots in the hoopla and BS..was no one talked to the Kenosha Education Association. See the stories work out so much better for your point of view when you can wrte the ending!
OOPs...looks like Belling did not give us the whole story(surprise surprise). Yes the big government republicans in office in WI have pretty much legislated the teachers unions out of business, then sic their cheering section on the story to pretend that the people do not want to join the unions.
It is also hilarious, and ironic, that the crew that told us we cant have elections every year(ie the recall), then made law that the unions had to re- certify every year. yes Irony is lost on them.
I also keep waiting for the JSONLINE editorial board to tell us that the removal of unions and the annual re-certification was not justified!
I know they have it in them!
So when you are perusing the right wing blogs, newspaper, tv shows that fill up our airwaves....remember
