Across the USA, AFT teachers say 'No f______ way!'

Despite some pirouettes, AFT President Randi Weingarten hasn't really changed her position on the major issues confronting the unions' locals across the USA. This has been true since AFT Bill Gates during the union's 2010 national convention in Seattle, while ignoring Gates's own union busting in the tech industries and the history of militancy in the labor movement in the Northwest. Also, Randi had her loyalists from Baltimore and New York boo Chicago (and other) teachers who walked out when Gates took the stage with Randi.
