1. There HAS to be an election this Spring. It will be interesting to see how MORE does....

... given the fact that the ruling UNITY caucus polled over 90% 3 years ago. Intelligently, the new caucus expanded the traditional dialogue to include corruption in the system as a whole and the suppression of free speech and democracy in the workplace. "Academic freedom" we called it, once upon a time. The korporate slugs running the system these days are all about barbed wire and hierarchy, and have no idea how to counter that charge.

And Perdido Street is right: there is a tidal wave of resentment toward UFT in the ranks. Most UFTers I meet think of the current leadership as a modern day Vichy... even if most don't use that particular political frame of reference.
