Grande said that he expressed his frustration about the training both in his feedback and in conversation with two of his colleagues, who then reported his criticisms to the district.
While Grande filed the complaint shortly after his school threatened to fire him, he had no means of forcing the district to address it since AFT 1018 has the exclusive power to arbitrate grievances with the district, and it has the power to determine which cases it will take.
Grande believes that the union rejected his case to retaliate against him for not joining the union fully. He does pay dues earmarked for contract negotiations with the district, but he is not a full union member so as to avoid paying dues that will then be donated to politicians and political causes he doesn't support.
"Officials are refusing to represent him simply because he isn't a member," said Nathan McGrath, president of the Fairness Center. "John is just asking the union to do its job so he can continue doing his."

Jimmy Kimmel Laughs in Herschel Walker’s ‘Stupid’ Face
“Trump’s celebrity apprentice down in Georgia had a very bad day,” Jimmy Kimmel said during his monologue Tuesday night before launching into a merciless takedown of Herschel Walker following The Daily Beast bombshell about the anti-abortion candidate paying for a girlfriend’s abortion.
Noting that Walker characterizes himself a “man of God” and “Mr. Pro-Life” and “Mr. Family Values,” Kimmel said that this “wasn’t just a random” claim from the “former lover,” citing the check and get well card signed by the candidate.
From there, Kimmel roasted Walker for claiming to Fox News’ Sean Hannity that he had never seen the card he signed even as it appeared on screen beside him. Laughing hysterically, the host joked, “C’mon, Sean, you can’t expect me to keep track of all the abortion cards I’ve sent out.”
“Imagine being so stupid you write a check for an abortion you want to keep secret,” Kimmel added.
Finally, Kimmel played an extended clip of the video that the candidate’s son Christian Walker posted on social media earlier in the day in which he went off on his father for having four kids with four different women and “wasn’t in the house raising one of them.”
“Eric and Don Jr. are like, ‘Holy crap, you can do that?’” Kimmel joked, followed by “Herschel’s like, ‘Oops, I should have aborted that one too.’”
