In a stunning move that could reshape the face of city schools, the Philadelphia School Reform Commission voted Monday to unilaterally cancel its teachers contract. The vote was unanimous.

“We are not indentured servants.”
No. You’re employees. If you don’t like your working conditions leave.
The NLRB's communist general counsel Richard Griffin will take care of it, though.

Bwahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. Join the rest of us suffering from the idiot Clown Prince nobama. Most of you “educators” voted twice for the bum.
I agree. Give them their walking papers. In this roaring Obama economy, they should have no difficulty finding another job...at higher pay and better benefits!
Democrats’ War on Teachers!
“I am taking nothing off the table,” a clearly angry Jordan said at an afternoon news conference. Job actions could be possible, once he determines what members want to do. “We are not indentured servants.”
And the taxpayers who are being fleeced so you can have your cushy, jobs, pensions and healthcare are not supposed to be wage-slaves... yet they are.
Boo hoo, unionistas!
Teachers freaking out all over theTV becasue they’re going to -******gasp*****- have to pay some of the premium on their healthcare insurance - maybe something like $60 per month - and all on salaries of only something like an average of $80k per year for ten months’ work - oh, the horror.....
I’ll bet the All Mighty Union is fit to be Hog-Tied.
