Orange teachers union decertified
Defective paperwork has caused the Orange County Classroom Teachers Association to lose its state certification, which in turn has chilled relations between the organization and the district, the Orlando Sentinel reports.
"We don't seem to have that collaborative, working relationship," CTA president Diana Moore told the Sentinel. She offered a couple of examples, including the district's recent dismissive reaction to a union climate survey and the superintendent's unwillingness to meet to talk about morale issues.
The union expects to have its certification cleared up next week. As to the underlying relationship, it's not so clear.
