Walk in my shoes

This video is just special on so many levels. It comes from Service Employees International Union (SEIU), a labor union representing 1.8 million workers in about 100 occupations in the US and Canada. As a past special education teacher and school psychologist, I know that the teacher’s union was critical to my survival. I cannot imagine how folks who work in school systems could manage without it. Although most believe unions are only there to negotiate for pay and benefits, they actually do so much more than that through mediation type services.
