A gay teacher recently fired from her position at a Catholic high school in Columbus says a local teachers union will not support her effort to get reinstated.

Carla Hale, who was fired from Bishop Watterson High School in March, said today that the Central Ohio Association of Catholic Educators’ grievance committee determined that the union will not back her cause..

“COACE’s decision should not be interpreted as reflecting unfavorably upon Ms. Hale as a person or as an educator,” says a letter from the grievance committee provided by Hale.“She is known to COACE as a caring and compassionate educator whose professionalism is unquestioned.”

Phone and email messages to union officers were not returned.

Hale’s attorney, Thomas Tootle, said the decision means that the union will not financially back Hale’s cause, and supporters of the teacher have started a fund on her behalf.

Hale next plans to appeal to Superintendent Lucia McQuaide of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Columbus, which oversees the school. If McQuaide denies reinstatement, the case would go to arbitration, Tootle said.

Without union representation, how can her case go to arbitration? Just wondering.

Whoever thought going to the media was going to get her reinstated needs to have his head examined. If anything, she just torpedoed her chances at finding a similar position at a government school because everybody knows who she is.

Lawyers are so dumb sometimes. The world is not a courtroom. Playing Tresselball and the whole grind people to death in the courtroom until they're sick of you strategy doesn't work in situations like these (or with Benghazi, for that matter).

Best thing to do would have been to stay low key and find another job ... quietly.

Dumb.

Good question.
The union must have gotten some pretty convincing feedback from its lawyers and membership to hang her out to dry.

You're talking about people who have annual parades to celebrate buggery and the diseases it spawns.

True. And thanks for using the word "buggery" since I think I was the first to use it on this board.

I've seen it more than once in my working life. If the union feels that someone has blantantly violated the rules they agreed to when hired, the union will not represent the terminated employee. She's sunk, and the union has much deeper pockets then she does. She needs to look for work in California.
