As of late I’ve been in contact, via email, with our former union chapter chair, Mike Ruggeri. I asked him if I could share some of the information from his email blasts on The Lounge to which he stated, “Of course, post it everywhere.”
Suffice it to say, he continues to be involved with our union concerns. Here’s what Mike would like you to know:
- He’s created a website, ASSAULT ON TEACHERS. According to Mike, “It has up to date news on the sustained assault on the teaching profession by those who hate us.” Check it out.
- He would like you to send him a personal email address so that he can add you to his email blast list. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s good to know that he’s still involved with our college faculty. For those of you who do not know about Mike, ask some of the ‘older’ faculty members about his union tenure.
I still remember him coming to my office when I first started. He gave me the pro-union speech and got my signature on the spot. Along the way, we had our fair share of disagreements regarding union issues, but he always listened and when needed, agreed to disagree.
