Green Dot, Inc. and Weingarten Ready for the Bloomberg to Fire the Starting Gun

Weingarten has the troops mobilized and ready to give away their job security and autonomy. Wonder if she is angling for some of the Broad-Gates cash to fund her campaign for AFT president? Then Broad would own management (Green Dot, Inc.) and labor (AFT)--and, of course, the souls of the children. From New York Teacher:

  1. I've been looking at Green Dot as a sort of "union-lite" situation. You have a union, but you never gain seniority rights, there is no tenure, and your job can be eliminated whenever management feels like it. As far as I know, the "just cause" dismissal procedure has never been tested. It appears there's no reason for them to even utilize it.
