The American Federation of Teachers (AFT) held their national convention in Detroit, Michigan in July.
Randi Weingarten was re-elected AFT President to a third term.
"We need to act in innovative, creative and new ways—simultaneously refuting our critics, advancing our values, connecting with community and proposing solutions. That's solution-driven unionism," Weingarten said in her speech to the delegates.
PSI general secretary Peter Waldorff brought greetings to the PSI-affiliated AFT unionists.
