They joined for all the correct reasons, in spite of the powerful anti-union forces arrayed against them.

After years in which many schools’ campaigns lost momentum while waiting for a never-realized NLRB victory, argued Ross, “the frustrating experience has been quite valuable, I think, as a lesson that organizing can’t stop and wait – it has to be going on in tandem with the legal process.”


That's huge.

They had to do something.

The NLRB, has been rendered, like so many other departments meant to aid people, impotent by the usual suspects.

I get accused of all sorts of things, just for mentioning them by name.

But yeah, regaining the courts for the people, should be on the front burner, along with getting the money out.
