Minneapolis teachers union wants white teachers laid off first

| August 16, 2022

Minneapolis, the sacred city where St Floyd of Fentanyl was martyred, had a public school teachers strike last school year. They agreed to new contract stipulations with the city, breaking the strike. Now, the contract has come out, and shows some blatantly codified racism. Racism that violates both state and federal law as well as common sense. It also undermines a cornerstone of collective bargaining by tossing seniority out the window in favor of “equity.”

From Fox News;

An agreement between the Minneapolis Federation of Teachers union and the school district states that White teachers will be laid off before teachers of color, regardless of their seniority.

The agreement, which was reached to end a two-week teacher strike last spring, says that starting this school year, “if excessing a teacher who is a member of a population underrepresented among licensed teachers in the site, the district shall excess the next least senior teacher, who is not a member of an underrepresented population.”

Excessing teachers is the process by which staff are reduced at a particular school due to a drop in enrollment, funding or other reasons.

The agreement further goes on to say that when reinstating teachers, “the District shall prioritize the recall of a teacher who is a member of a population underrepresented among licensed teachers in the district.”

According to the agreement, the purpose of the policies is to solve for “past discrimination” by the district, which the agreement said “disproportionately impacted the hiring of underrepresented teachers in the District, as compared to the relevant labor market and the community, and resulted in a lack of diversity of teachers.”

According to the Star Tribune, 50 teachers of color will be losing their positions this fall due to cuts tied to enrollment losses.

In a summary of the agreement, the union says the policies will move the district “closer to safe and stable schools.”

“Students need educators who look like them and who they can relate to,” the document says. “This language gives us the ability to identify and address issues that contribute to disproportionately high turnover of educators of color.”

Edward Barlow, a band teacher and member of the Minneapolis Federation of Teachers executive board, told the Star Tribune that the agreement can be a “national model” for finding ways to retain teachers of color.

The agreement states that these policies will no longer be in effect when the diversity of teachers in the district represent that of the community and labor market.

“To remedy the continuing effects of past discrimination, Minneapolis Public Schools and the Minneapolis Federation of Teachers (MFT) mutually agreed to contract language that aims to support the recruitment and retention of teachers from underrepresented groups as compared to the labor market and to the community served by the school district,” a spokesperson for the Minneapolis Public Schools told Fox News Digital.

The Minneapolis Federation of Teachers did not respond to Fox News Digital’s request for coment. [sic]

If they’re being this racist in dealings between labor and management, imagine how racist they’re willing to be in their daily lives.

The (D)emon-rats are not even hiding their racism any more. Some lawyer is gonna get a good payout for taking this one on.

“St Floyd of Fentanyl” is now going to have to enter my vocabulary.

One of the rare areas where we fully agree – this is utterly stupid, and racist, while coached in ‘anti-racist’ terms. The support for this isn’t uniform among Democrats, but it’s sufficient enough to hurt them.

Deckie

Wow. Some union…

SFC D

Just another reason I’m not a fan of unions.

This is SYSTEMATIC Racism.

It’s built in the system.

Let’s not stop there. This needs to be implemented immediately in all businesses and activities. Let’s start with an industry that is worth billions of dollars and is subsidized by the taxpayers. This organization is made up of ethnic group occupying 58% of the positions in the industry. That’s right, when NFL teams need to cut their rosters, the first ones to go should be African Americans. NFL fans need players who look like them and who they can relate to.

Come on man! This is the last industry where men can be men without any of the “me too” woke malarkey.

Deshaun Watson sexually assaulted 24 women and was then given a $240,000,000 contract. They may as well have said “shut up bitches, go fix me turkey pot-pie”. Really I am surprised that they didn’t make the women apologize to him for being so hot that he had to assault them. Cuz they were just asking for it.

Whitey be bad, bad. Fire or lay-off whitey first and only whitey.

So, diversity is our strength is not a thing anymore?

Hack Stone

So, if a teacher is biracial, do they still get laid off?

5JC

They have to since they only represent 3.2% of the population.

SFC D

No, they get shifted to part-time teaching.

Rimshot.

It’ll collapse at the first lawsuit. With prejudice, which I find most oddly fitting.

This is oddly reminiscent of 1970s Detroit. That ended well.

UpNorth

Yeah, not only Detroit, but Pontiac, Flint, Saginaw and Bay City.

The first intelligent white teacher who gets laid off can and should file suit against the district and the union. The district for discrimination and the union for failure to fairly represent all members.

Don’t forget Gary, Indiana.

Oh, before I forget, fuck Richard Hatcher.

Damn shame that that pesky Constitution of these States United in gonna get in the way of this contract. This subject should go on the Stoopid People of The Week Thread. Which was more teh stoopid, the idjits that drew this contract up or the dumbasses that voted for it? Oh…wait…the Union probably told their members that they HAD to vote for the contract. The Confederacy was non-union. Jus’ sayin’. 😉

“Which was more teh stoopid, the idjits that drew this contract up or the dumbasses that voted for it?”

Ol’ Poe would suggest perhaps the lawyers who provided the legal review of the contracts on both sides before signatures were affixed. 🤔

Looks like the NBA will be folding at any moment.

And in other news e s, Liz Cheney is out of a job. Thank you Wyoming.

Ahhh, another RINO swamp creature bites the dust!

Devtun

She’s a creature of NOVA anyways. Spent most of her life there. This hag will probably try running for POTUS in 2024. Maybe even governor of VA if the potus thing doesn’t work out. Probably MSDNC/CNN talking head in the short term. Good job Wyoming dumping this pos.

The Stranger

At this point, that bitch couldn’t get elected sewer commissioner.

Now if we can get the California liberals out of Teton County, maybe I can afford to move back.

What happens when they run out of white teachers to lay off?
Who’s next? I want to see the Order of Battle.

As a former Teamster it saddens me that their members ratified this contract, and they deserve to be laid off and the union leadership is STEALING your money every month. The woke white teachers are virtue signaling thinking “I have enough seniority…”, but they’ll be singing a different tune when a pink slip with their name on it. Plus, this district must really SUCK, because everywhere else they are shorthanded and begging for teachers. If you 60 college credits, pass a subject matter exam, and are former military you can substitute teach in Florida.

Simple fix? Identify as another race?

Liberal demoRat teachers should like this but not Conservative teachers if their are any in the school system so if no Conservatives teachers in the system, I’ll go along with it. Remember that liberals are the ones for quotas in hiring

Av8or33

The union membership voted on this? That’s nuts.

The Stranger

Remember, in Atlas Shrugged the Union at the 20th Century Motor Company willingly voted themselves into slavery. Who is John Galt?

Makes me proud to be a Minnesotan.
This state has been predominantly DFL (Democrat Farm-Labor) for most of my life. That wasn’t always a bad thing. There were some very good Democrats that came out of the Minnesota system, and Minnesota is generally a great place to live; if you live outside the Twin Cities Metropolitan Area.
Most of the state’s population lives there, and most of that population is liberal. So, the policies the rest of us have to put up with are based on URBAN living perceptions of how the RURAL population lives or views things (which the Urban population sees as backward, racist, homophobic, transphobic, Hydrophobic, accrophobic, and phobophobic).
So, when I saw this Union Contract on Fox the other night I wasn’t so much surprised as I was nodding my head going; “yep”. The modern Democrats in this state are NOT DFL. They are COMMUNIST Party straight up.
