Unions have been associated with protecting the rights of employees for unfair discrepancies, handling, and management. In education, the power of teacher unions is transparent in each respectful district more so in each school building. With very little assistance and support from the state level, teachers feel independent in issues and need stronger resolve and substantive control over inequitable procedural and contractual obligations.
At the local level, teacher unions in each building have insignificant depth when teachers need defense for infringement circumstances related to their teaching responsibilities. More support from the state level in many cases can provide more corroboration for the stability and just in each teacher’s case of question. With a third party moderator that does not have ties to the school, could protect the rights of teachers far better than its current state.
The omnipresent nature for the defense of teachers in a subjective arbitrary standpoint can diffuse the pressures district and school unions apply in these inquiries. The pressures are confiding to bureaucratic presences from administration or other staff members with leadership authority. This sway of opinion from administration to coerce teacher unions is irremediable and needs severe consequences, which go unnoticed due to their influence within the school.
My position is to include a third party union member in all union representative conferences, generating more power and purpose for teacher justices. If a teacher’s rights are in question, then more assistance must derive from the state and national level providing a litigate interaction and validation to any and all meetings.
