Union Leader Expelled From Own Union
Always looking for ways to improve and impress, the executive council of the Chicago Teachers Union voted yesterday to kick out its elected Vice President, Ted Dallas, who's been a union member since 1970 (Chicago Teachers Union Ousts Vice President Huffington Post Chicago). Dallas and his President, Marilyn Stewart, had been on the outs for almost a year now. They have each accused each other of mis-spending union funds, among other things. Fun!
I was on Chicago Public Radio explaining the conflict yesterday morning, just before the vote took place (audio here). However, I didn't really think they'd go through with it.
