    Some academies, such as the one in which I ended my teaching career, simply ignore unions; they will deal with them, speak to them, or allow union representatives to accompany staff to disciplinary meetings. Under this sort of regime, unions are ineffective, and so memberships dwindles.

    Getling. Actually I refused from the off to do any 'intervention' but then I never worked in an academy. To refer to those who were pressured, however, as cowardly war criminal nazis is WAY out of line.:mad:
