Union Irony

Ohio's largest teachers union is having labor problems of its own.

Labor-relations consultants, who help local teachers unions negotiate contracts with school districts, and other employees of the Ohio Education Association walked off the job this morning.

One striking worker was treated at the hospital after suffering minor injuries when he was struck by a car while picketing outside OEA's Downtown offices on E. Broad Street.

Most of the 110 striking workers - all members of the OEA's Professional Staff Union - earn more than $100,000 a year, according to reports filed with the U.S. Department of Labor. For instance, labor-relations consultants - who make up about 80 percent of the striking workers - were paid an average salary of $111,350 in 2009.

That is about $10,000 more than the average Ohio school-district superintendent made last school year, and more than double what the average teacher made, according to the state statistics.

The teacher union better not hire scabs to work for them.

Im lost, it says...

"Labor-relations consultants, who help local teachers unions negotiate contracts"

So are they just hired consultants paid by the union to help with negotiations or are they actual union members? I would normally say they are hired outside workers but the fact that they are picketing has me confused. Either way the irony is funny as hell

So the union's union is on strike? They're getting a taste of their own medicine. Extremely ironic!
