The Fremont teachers’ union is protesting at 6 p.m. tonight outside City Hall, where at 7 p.m. the school board will begin a meeting that almost assuredly will last three hours longer than it needs to.
The teachers’ union is upset about proposed cuts given that the district has a healthy reserve. They also note that they have taken 11 furlough unpaid furlough days over the past two years.
That’s nothing. I’ll have done 15 in two years by the middle of next week.
I should probably note that the union has a no-layoff clause in its contract. I shouldn’t note this, but will anyway: A three-member majority of the school board would probably be scandalized if their 25-year-old child saw a PG-13 movie.
