Unions use to be a good thing. They got much of the laws that are in place today that are good, like child labor laws. But now adays they are nothing more than bullies that is one of the causes for so many manufacturing jobs leaving the USA. So no, I don't support em.

No, but it's not specific to teachers. I don't really agree with the idea of unions much at all. I don't think they're necessary in today's world.

I think everyone should have the right to unionize from CEOs to Janitors, except for the military.
as with most unions, they had good intentions at one time.. but now it seems they'll financially break a community and care less about it..
our super gets pait over 100K and the school is on the edge of being a class A.. the township is less than 3000 people..
the average starting is around 36K for 166days or so of work, in a community who average yearly income per two parent income is about 36K
i very much believe this is status-quo in most schools and scales up as expected to larger schools.

Government employees shouldn't have a union.
