Jacobin: Brooklyn Friends School faculty & staff launch indefinite strike

 Amidst efforts by the private, religious school, the Brooklyn Friends School, to break the faculty union that formed and began negotiations with the school in the Spring of 2019. School employees argue that the efforts to decertify the union, and hiding behind a recent NLRB ruling that states the board holds no jurisdiction over religious institutions, flies in direct contradiction to the school's stated beliefs in social justice. Mindy Isser interviewed a teacher at the school for Jacobin Magazine. The interview ran yesterday, the first day of the strike.
