Labor Pains: Because Being in a Union can be Painful

Union organizer fired for organizing union of union organizers

You read that right (you may need to read it a few times to fully grasp the hypocrisy). An employee of the Clark County Education Association (CCEA) in Las Vegas was allegedly fired for trying to organize a union of the union’s organizers.

My job is to recruit teachers to join the union, but you won’t allow me to join a union,” claimed Maria Lean Hermason, a former organizer at the CCEA. The National Labor Relations Board will hear her complaint in August.
