Duckworth bails on the Teachers Union

Via Kerry Lester at

A Democratic congressional candidate with heavy union support says the Chicago teachers strike is the result of “a failure on both sides.”

Tammy Duckworth of Hoffman Estates went on to say that the Chicago Teachers Union could learn from suburban teachers unions and school boards, many of which have successfully hammered out issues without disrupting classes.

“It didn’t have to happen,” Duckworth said. The weeklong Chicago strike “shows that there’s a failure on both sides.”

Tough spot for Duckworth.  She’s funded by the Unions and sponsored by Rahm Emanuel. So she bailed on both.
