Anyone know what is going on?

If you want the media involved, you have to present a compelling story. The truth is, there were lots of stories in 2014 and 2015 about bigger schools, such as Corinthian Colleges (Everest/Wyotech/Heald), ITT Tech, Devry, and University of Phoenix... read more

If you decide to go outside to establish a local, do shop around. While union organizers may be hard working, many mainstream unions are rotten at the top levels. Ultimately, a union is only as good as its local membership and their willingness to... read more

Killing free speech

I can't believe that UTI was able to but off this site and kill Going, Going, gone and the entire thread. It is very sad that UTI does not want to hear the truth about themselves and their miss management. UTI is pathetic.
