The NY United Teachers union is comprised of more than 1,200 local unions across NY State. This year the Movement of Rank-and-file Educators (MORE) ran six candidates for the Board of Directors. NYSUT Elections have been uncontested since 1979. The six candidates pooled their speaking time at the NYSUT Representative Assembly convention and were represented by Lauren Cohen and Mike Schirtzer. Behind them were James Eterno, Julie Cavanaugh, Francesco Portelos, Jia Lee from MORE and our union sister from Port Jefferson Teachers Association Beth Dimino.
Electrifying. You guys were *great*.
If I knew that *real* stuff (i.e. consequential subject matter ) was going to be part of that convention, frankly, I would have paid more attention. Forty lashes for me.
Is that Beth Dimino the one who confronted ex-kindergarten teacher-trainees Tisch and King at that LI CCSS hearing on youtube? Looks like the same lady.
Sheeezzz. Tough customer. Glad she’s on our side.
Yes that is Beth. She is a dynamo.
