As protecting the lazy and incompetant is the unions main priority.

The Unions own the Democratic Party. If not for the Unions Obama might have been a decent President and the Democratic Party might still be worthy of American citizen trust and support. How sad for our children. How sad for us all.
Ah, gotcha. Thought it'd be about the Dem Party pretty soon...LOL

Why did they "have" to cut 400 jobs?

Most companies, not just unions, follow the 'last hired, first fired' rule. Why do you pretend this is the union's fault?

Do you think that long-time employees should be laid off instead of recently-hired ones? Wouldn't that tend to work against keeping well-trained, experienced, hightly-competent employees in most cases?

How do you judge the competence of teachers? Do you know that there WERE any "incompetent" teachers who could have been laid off?

Show us how "lazy and incompetent teachers" were "protected" by union policies here, and maybe I'll buy your line of BS.

Smutmegger.....WOW...I'm impressed by a crafty LEFTIE.

This paricular teacher was " Teacher of the year " in the state of California so obviously she was judged extremely close . So that answers your question about " How do you judge " or didn't you pay attention to the criteria of my statement.

I worked under unions and with unions and they do protect the dead weight , always have and always will.
I'm sure many of you LEFTIES would be pissin' ana moan' if the NBA , MLB and the NFL went by seniority wouldn't you. Can you imagine a 50 YO Chris Mullins or Charles Barkley being protected by seniority and stll playing while a Kevin Durant waits to be hired ?

As to companies laying off policies it depends on whether they have a working evaluation policy such as the NBA , MLB or NFL.

If they have under achievers documented non-union companies will cut them I know ' I'm a career manager .

In the NYC school district they cannot fire convicted felons so they just put them on paid leave with full pay until retirement age and I'm sure a LEFTY like you would approve.

>>Doesn't take much to impress you, I'm sure.:)

>>I asked how you judged the competence of OTHER teachers, idiot, not this one. If you think teachers are incompetent, and need to be fired, how do you determine that?

I worked under unions and with unions and they do protect the dead weight , always have and always will.

>>Your story. Not impressed.

I'm sure many of you LEFTIES would be pissin' ana moan' if the NBA , MLB and the NFL went by seniority wouldn't you. Can you imagine a 50 YO Chris Mullins or Charles Barkley being protected by seniority and stll playing while a Kevin Durant waits to be hired ?

>>Umm, but this ISN'T the NBA, etc. These are the state schools. can't you answer my question about seniority and who uses it?

As to companies laying off policies it depends on whether they have a working evaluation policy such as the NBA , MLB or NFL.

>>Again with the sports, even though they're irrelevant to the argument....poor.

If they have under achievers documented non-union companies will cut them I know ' I'm a career manager .

>>Sure, but I asked you how you documented and executed those policies, especially in the case of layoffs.

In the NYC school district they cannot fire convicted felons so they just put them on paid leave with full pay until retirement age and I'm sure a LEFTY like you would approve.

>>Irrelevant. Guess you simply can't answer most of my questions.
