Perspectives: 294/365

Brandi Rooney (Taylorville Soccer Coach)

I’m attending my first union meeting in years,
Normally, I just pay dues, and
Hope I never need whatever it is that they do.

The meetings are usually bitch sessions,
Air quality, principals doing things differently,
That kind of stuff.

This one is for us, the coaches,
A planning session for future action
Something about contract language

So that we can get paid
If the district arbitrarily cancels a season
Which seems silly since the kids shut it down this time.

Maybe this will be my last union meeting in years,
I’ll stick to paying my dues,
Or maybe I won’t.
