MFT 59 - Minneapolis Federation of Teachers fails to release election results as per rules and elections

In a constested Union election where the leadership was accused of being racist by the Minneapolis NAACP and using the union for political interests rather than what is good for teachers and staff.

After leaving messages by phone, email and twitter we are still waiting for the results.

Friday, May 13 - Election closes

Wednesday, May 18 - Results announced and certified

There was a Twitter post yesterday calling for solidarity.

MFT 59 @MFT59
