United We Sub

Now the subs at Ithaca are unionizing. The question is, what does that do to the rest of the districts, who often choose subs out of the same BOCES pool? Can people sub as union workers in Ithaca and as nonunion workers in Groton? Will the benefits they work for in Ithaca have to be duplicated by other districts? It's hard enough to find subs as it is. I foresee a g*dawful mess.

Though I am all for unions and believe they protect schools from taking advantage of teachers....I think unionizing subs is a terrible idea. Just like you said, it is difficult to get subs as it is!

I'm a teacher, and I do not work for a unionized school!! I would love to have that protection....
