Union’s Interest Top Priority

I just read something in the Albuquerque Journal that I find very troubling (subscription):

The American Federation of Teachers and the AFL-CIO of New Mexico endorsed Baca, partly because he has been “a consistent friend to labor,” said the groups’ president, Christine Trujillo.

This endorsement comes despite the fact that under the management of Pat Lyons the Land Office has delivered record revenues. Obviously, the American Federation of Teachers is putting the union’s self-interest above all else including the needs of children and communities.
