Union proud

New York Teacher

I’m one of those who went out on strike and lost two days’ pay for each day on strike. However, I took my entire department out with me, including a nonmember of the union. I have fond memories of that woman and that strike. I remember Ray Frankel’s strong advice, Bea Hector’s fantastic medical knowledge and Abe Levine’s mantra, “Medicare is not an entitlement!” It exists because we paid into the fund for all of our working years. Don’t give it away!
