Re: Union may ban Israeli academics who support offensiveJan 9th, 2009
ok. Now that you made it not so vague. I guess we will boycott all things Israeli if it were up to the "union". Where is the line drawn and do they have the necessary resources and intellect to determine where that line is. I'd say no they don't.
They'r a union!!! Nothinh more and they''re overstepping their baliwick
They said the plan for this was being presented for a vote.... that doesn't mean it's actually going to pass, but they have the right to decide how their workplace shall be. If the majority don't want that sort of stuff at their universities, then it will be voted as such and be done..... if the majority don't care, then nothing will change.
But still what is a union doing in non work related matters? They;ve down this previously over the years and basically ended up looking and sounding idiotic.
