MEA caught in hypocritical trap

Amusing little tidbit from the Detroit News today:

Detroit News: Editorial Quick Hits: Ours (09/01/07)

"What's good for the Michigan Education Association is apparently not good for taxpayers. The state's largest teachers union is asking its own staff to take cuts in retirement benefits and retiree health care. The union representing MEA staff, the United Staff Organization, is threatening to strike. The demands the MEA is making of its own union workers aren't much different than those being made by the school districts with which the MEA has contracts. And yet the union is fighting those concessions. The MEA might have a better case with its own workers if it were more reasonable with the taxpayers."
