Needing union approval


To the Editor:
Retired teacher Jeffery Miner’s letter, “Teachers made up the Union” (Beacon 9/14/17), facetiously questioned my knowledge that the teachers constitute the union. Let me answer it this way: I graduated Cranston High School at age 16 and knew that the Warwick teachers constituted their Union four days later. I was celebrating the first three days as my family was finally going to move out of our log cabin along the Pawtuxet River. My going to work at the Industrial Trust Bank the following week, at age 16, made this possible. They couldn’t love me more.
What Mr. Miner should know, and does know, is that the teachers need union approval for every action they wish to participate in within their schools.

Dear Gene Nadeau,

I have very often disagreed with your decisions but I never questioned your knowledge.

No one else should either.

I enjoyed reading about the log cabin.

Happy Autumn Gene.

Happy Autumn everyone.
