Video: Detroit teachers speak out against DFT Contract
8 December 2009
Detroit public school teachers expressed overwhelming opposition to a contract negotiated between a state-appointed financial director and the Detroit Federation of Teachers (DFT) at a mass meeting Sunday afternoon. Dozens of teachers lined up before the microphone to denounce the contract. In response, DFT President Keith Johnson threatened the teachers with the bankruptcy of the school system, and that he would not get any better terms if he returned to the bargaining table.
