New York State Teachers Association (NYSTA) Address

Al Shanker urges another New York teachers' union to accept the merger proposal before them to join his New York teachers' union. He discusses some of the compromises reached between the two groups on administrative and structural details. Ultimately, though, he argues that such details are unimportant to most teachers and most people. What is important, he asserts, is that together, the two groups can forcefully address the problems facing the education system in New York. He calls for cooperation and unity and strongly encourages them to accept the merger.
