Even unions are anti-union

The United Federation of Teachers fires a staffer for trying to organize its staff:

In a move of stunning hypocrisy, the United Federation of Teachers axed one of its longtime employees — for trying to unionize the powerful labor organization’s own workers, it was charged yesterday. Jim Callaghan, a veteran writer for the teachers union, told The Post he was booted from his $100,000-a-year job just two months after he informed UFT President Michael Mulgrew that he was trying to unionize some of his co-workers.

The union reportedly said it was important that it be able to fire anyone it needed, and unionized employees would interfere with that. No word on whether they saw the irony.
