Shameless teachers union recruits students

In the simmering California State University labor showdown, professors are enlisting new recruits for battle - their students. Last week, English professor William Nericcio, a union activist, did some online recruiting. In an e-mail addressed to his "beloved students," Nericcio argued the union's case and solicited student support. Claire Potes-Fellow, a CSU spokesperson, said Nericcio should be ashamed for involving students. She believes students would be the hardest-hit victims if the union chooses to strike in April.
