BRONX NEWS: Charter school axes 11 teachers without notice amid union talks


A Bronx charter school dedicated to educating students about social justice and the law fired 11 of its 15 teachers with no notice last month — including eight who were trying to bargain a union contract with management.


The abrupt dismissals forced the United Federation of Teachers, which represents educators at the Charter High School for Law and Social Justice in the Bronx, to file a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board.


“By discharging approximately 73% of the 15 bargaining unit members, CHSLSJ sent a clear message … support the UFT and you will be fired,” the complaint said.


“CHSLSJ’s actions demonstrate a clear attempt to derail the UFT’s status and support … and will irreparably chill bargaining unit members’ rights,” the union said.


The dismissals came after a year of attempts from the charter school teachers to negotiate a contract with CHSLSJ, which was approved as a charter school in 2013 and opened its doors in 2015.


Serving roughly 220 students in the 9th and 10th grades, the school’s mission called for a special emphasis on community development and social justice issues.


Steve Campbell, 42, was among the 15 teachers hired by CHSLSJ — and among the 11 fired last month.


“I am job searching right now. I was told on June 20, when I was fired, that my last paycheck was June 30,” said Campbell, an English literature teacher.


Attracted by CHSLSJ’s core goals, Campbell signed on in 2015 and — after a short and successful organizing drive by the UFT — voted to join the union along with his colleagues on March 28, 2016.


Almost immediately, Campbell said, he and seven others on the union bargaining committee opened talks with the CHSLSJ management, including principal Sean Harrell and school founder and board member Richard Marsico.


Marsico, director of the Justice Action Center at New York Law School and a law professor, is a frequent speaker on social justice issues in high schools and elsewhere.


Campbell said the contract talks started off well and the eight members of the bargaining committee felt progress was being made.


“Some verbal commitments were made … parameters around salary and working situations and hours and those sorts of things,” Campbell said.


But a year later, nothing had been settled, he said. The eight-member UFT bargaining committee began to suspect CHSLSJ was dragging its feet to run the clock out on the school year, he said.


“From the administrative side, there was a total lack of communication,” he said.


Administrators only told him that the school was going in another direction, he said.


“No reason was given,” Campbell said of his firing.


Reached at his Westchester home by the Daily News, Marsico said he couldn’t talk about the firings.


“We can’t comment on personnel matters,” he said.


Someone who answered the phone at the Morris Heights school said Principal Harrell wasn’t available. Asked to provide an email for the principal, the call was put on hold and never picked back up.


Special education support specialist Kelly Diaz, 31, said the charter school was going to be a special place to work because of its social justice focus.


“I was really blindsided. I thought (contract talks) were moving slowly, but still moving in a direction that was beneficial to the students, staff and the school as a whole,” she said.


Despite being a new teacher, Diaz said she didn’t receive a single evaluation from higher ups during her first year.


“There were a lot of gaps where management was concerned,” she said.


On top of the eight members of the UFT bargaining committee who were fired, the three other teachers dismissed were all union members who had spoken to management about school issues, the UFT said.


It called on the NLRB to issue an injunction against CHSLSJ and reinstate the dismissed teachers.


“The administration’s actions are a lesson in hypocrisy. A school that claims to teach law and social justice summarily fires most of its teachers because they had the nerve to advocate for their kids and for their own rights as employees,” UFT president Michael Mulgrew said.


Student Zsakaiyah Gardner, 15, cried when she heard Campbell and the other teachers were fired, said her mom Renaye Gardner.


“These kids came to school in the morning and these teachers met them at the door, shook their hands. They had a community meeting every morning to get ready for the day,” said Gardner.


“It wasn’t a perfect school … but the teachers were incredible. Each one of them formed a relationship with their students.”


Gardner said she’s had several problems with Principal Herrell and administrators in the school — and on June 6 sent an eight-page letter to the school’s board members detailing some of her issues.


One of those problems related to two students having sex in a bathroom, with a video of it shared on snapchat, Gardner said.


The Charter High School for Law and Social Justice was formed as a partnership between the College of Mount Saint Vincent and New York Law School.

Under Armour’s Kevin Plank Talks Competing with Nike

With Stephen Curry, Cam Newton and Tom Brady on their roster, Under Armour has a slew of stars that they have successfully marketed and built their brand around. However while said stars have been a big boost to Under Armour’s recent success, the company still plays second or perhaps third and even fourth fiddle to Nike.

Under Amour CEO Kevin Plank recently spoke about the company’s underdog status in the sneaker market while making an appearance on NBC’s “Today Show.”

Here are some of the highlights of Plank’s interview:

On going up against Nike: “Big companies do what big companies do. They’ve got more money. When we run a commercial, we’ve got one shot. The person has to be great. It has to hit.”

Plank used to send a Christmas card saying, “You will know our name” to Nike’s Phil Knight.

More about competing with Nike: “I was pitting it as us versus them. To me, we were always on their radar; we were always in that fight. The obligation of brands is the freshest and newest; whoever makes the best products is going to win.”

Under Armour has come a long way from their early days and it clear to see from Plank’s passion for the company, they are going to keep trying to compete for Nike as long as they can.
