I never in all of my parochial school days endured a teacher's strike. Actually, I think that honor was reserved for my freshman year of college. The next one I remember is when my kids were in school in Livonia and the teachers went on strike.
Many years later, I hired in at the city of Livonia and one of the conditions of employment was I had to join a union - AFSCME - probably the most useless union ever. I remember being told at time of employment that our union could never go on strike. Not that I believe in striking, but what's the point of being in a union then?
It really makes me appreciate retirement!
