    Just on the news:

    A New York teacher, teaching one class a day, spends the rest of the day in union activities. He gets 100K for teaching, and 50K for the union work.

    In addition, the New York school system hires a substitute teacher to teach his classes that he is not there for to the tune of some 35K.

    COLLECTIVE BARGAINING AT ITS BEST!!

    Yo ain't seen anything.NJ has 500+ independant municipalities. Board of Ed's with less than 1k students,Police depts with less than 20 officers. Principal's in a HS with 400 students getting $175K, Business adminisrators getting 200k--police chiefs of a 20 man dept get severance packages of over 300k. I voted with my feet over 30 years ago. Gov. Christie, knows the facts.

    That's chicken feed if you compare it to another NY school. In assemblwoman Annie Rabbitt's district is the Kiryas Joel School District. They collect much less dollars from the local residents than the average school district. WHY? They get $19,000 per student in State Aid. (7times the NY average) THEN, they get $39,000 per student from the Federal Govt. The complete article was written by Matt Schaertl and appeared in the Canandaigua, NY "Daily Messenger" a week or so ago. It was titled "How Not To Run A School District". No wonder we're broke!!

    The graduation rate in these areas is among the lowest in the nation, but the

    highest in pay. Real bang for our education buck!

    School vouchers........private schools for everyone.

    If you don't want to go to school at all just join the union. As long as you

    pay dues they don't care who you are or what your age is. After all they need

    the $400 million they donate to elect democratic candidates during election

    years.

    HM, not unusual and usually contractual even in the private sector. Union officers often have unlimited rights to conduct union business on company time. Of course, nearly everything becomes attributed to union business so that no work needs to be done. Stewards are sometimes limited to a certain number of hours per year, say 700, 1000, etc. They are also sometimes unlimited. I'm a retired Labor manager.
