Randi Weingarten to rally with PTU

February 28, 2011

The head of the American Federation of Teachers will attend a rally with Providence teachers this Wednesday.

Randi Weingarten came to Central Falls, R.I. when the faculty of Central Falls High School faced mass layoffs. Union leaders say she will now join Providence teachers, who are fighting the city’s decision to dismiss all 1,926 district teachers in the face of budget cutbacks.

Rhode Island teachers’ union leaders say Weingarten was already scheduled to be in the Ocean State Wednesday to attend a retirement party for Marcia Reback, the longtime head of the Rhode Island Federation of Teachers and Health Professionals. They expect Weingarten to speak at the rally before heading over to that event.
