In answer to Eva Lund Billiston's article ("Proud UEA member," Readers' Forum, Mar. 10), she has done a good job of explaining "why I am member" of UEA. My question to Billiston is which person she is writing for? Is she the parent/taxpayer or teacher/union member? I would think they have different objectives.

It seems to me the parent/taxpayer is interested in what they get for their tax dollar. The teacher/union member is concerned about working conditions and wages. Both are legitimate concerns. The union uses taxpayers' money to fight the taxpayer. Who is paying the taxpayer to fight the union? I would like to know if this seems fair for the taxpayer? Both these sides have a strong point of view.
