AFFT in the Washington Examiner: Teachers at Pennsylvania charter school cut ties with state teachers union

Americans for Fair Treatment CEO David Osborne was featured in the Washington Examiner:

The labor union watchdog group Americans for Fair Treatment represented the Westinghouse teacher who sought the vote that ultimately led to the teachers cutting ties with the state union.

In a statement, the organization’s CEO David Osborne said, “It’s extremely rare to see teachers win against a powerful union like PSEA.”

“PSEA rarely delivers on its promises to teachers and should be held accountable,” Osborne said. “Because the odds are stacked against employees and in favor of union officials in so many ways, it takes a concerted effort to do what’s right.

Americans for Fair Treatment also said that the PSEA had sought to pressure teachers at the school to “stop helping students after school” as a hardball negotiation tactic.
