I mentioned in Wednesday’s column that employees of the California Teachers Association were planning a labor action to address the union’s failure to properly fund their pensions. Here is video of their picket line, courtesy of the Sacramento Bee:
This follows on the heels of a protest during a speech by SEIU president Mary Kay Henry earlier this month. The protesters are organizers for the union’s Fight for $15 campaign, but they themselves are being denied the right to join SEIU’s staff union, and they claim they receive less than $15 per hour. As you can see from the video, they are shouted down and one of their signs is ripped up.
