In a meeting earlier this week, Broward Teachers Union Chief Negotiator George Segna told Union Reps and high school teachers that Republicans were to blame for all their problems. Well-informed teachers confronted Segna, asking why they should blame Republicans, when the BTU continues to let teachers down. Some teachers mentioned the recent scandal involving the BTU leadership in an illegal campaign contribution scheme. Hello Bernie Schultz!
Fast forward to Thursday afternoon when high school teachers were informed they would switch scheduling methods next year without an increase in pay. Guess who the BTU said was to blame? Yep, you guessed it, “Tallahassee Republicans.” However, District sources tell RED BROWARD the BTU left money on the table.
Did the BTU refuse a pay raise for teachers? If so, why? Teachers should start asking more questions.
