PBA Shield

Pat Lynch slams the UFT’s president for threatening teachers who wore NYPD shirts to school:

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said:

“Teachers wearing NYPD shirts to school only underscores the solid relationship that exists between rank and file teachers and police officers.  Mike Mulgrew needs to consider the opinions of the vast majority of his members before misusing their dues money to support anti-police issues.  Besides, what could be inappropriate about showing support for the police department that protects teachers and students alike?  I also find it odd that a union would use management-like scare tactics in order to suppress the free expression of their members' ideas.  That goes against all of the principles for which unions stand.”
