I just found out that some are pushing UW's TAA to call for the University of Wisconsin to divest from Israel. That sounds like a terrible idea. We're a union, not an international activist group. We still haven't reached an agreement with the state on a contract for the period ending June 2005, and the state recently rejected our proposal for a 0% pay increase. Raising an issue that will divide the membership at a time like this is ridiculous.
