More Liberal Union Busting…

Again, from Penn. Amy Guttman, formerly very sympathetic to unions, now less so as President of an institution that has to deal with them.

One student (cum future department chair…) rushes to her aid:

Simi Wilhelm, chairwoman of the Graduate and Professional Student Assembly and a student in Penn’s Graduate School of Education, said she believes GET-UP leaders misinterpreted Gutmann’s academic works.

“What was talked about in [her writings on labor unions] and what [was] pursued at Penn are not the same thing,” Wilhelm said.

She added that Gutmann’s “support of a union in one context doesn’t translate to another.”

Of course not.
