A pernicious and very costly new tactic is emerging from teachers' union negotiations that taxpayers are unaware of, but will end up paying for.

Frank Ricci, a Labor Fellow at Yankee Institute, Retired Union President for New Haven (CT) Fire Fighters, and Battalion Chief, returns to Labor Relations Radio to discuss how teachers’ unions and their progressive counterparts are using the collective bargaining process to put costly social-justice programs into contracts under the nose of taxpayers.

In Boston, Ricci wrote recently, teachers’ union president Jessica Tang announced they secured “an unprecedented $50 million to commence bolstering the affordable housing that Boston students and families require.”

The Boston contract is being utilized as a template by the AFL-CIO to advance housing and ‘environmental justice,’ he notes.
