I just got an email stating part-time UFT President Randi Weingarten has resigned and may make her AFT job full-time. Fortunately, in these tough economic times, she does not appear to be taking a pay cut or giving up her chauffeur and SUV. VP Mike Mulgrew will replace her.
It's not immediately clear whether Mr. Mulgrew is intent on continuing Ms. Weingarten's disastrous backward policies. However, it appears she's intent on hanging around for the summer to negotiate a new contract, so don't count on good news anytime soon.
Will Mayor Mike be as cozy with UFT Prez Mike as he was with Ms. Weingarten?
Only time will tell.
