Why Don't We Raid Unions Any More?

So last week I was at a meeting where the no-raid agreement between the WEA and the PSE came up. We were talking about the nascent effort to organize the early learning centers, which is a joint effort with the AFT and the SEIU, and the very, very logical question was asked: why are we continuing to work on organizing day cares, which is an area we don't know much about, but not trying to get more of the support staff units, who we can do excellent work with?

There should be raids. The competitiveness would keep us sharp, and the WEA could do a lot of good for some of the units currently organized by the PSE. When the no-raid agreement comes up before the WEA Board again, I hope they reject it.
