It is with great sadness that the Officers of DCSMEC notify our Members on the passing of Charles (Chuck) Burdeen Chuck was the Executive Director of the Dade County Schools Administrator Association (DCSAA), a charter member of the Coalition of School Unions and a longtime friend of labor.  

Chuck had a long and distinguished career of fighting for the rights of workers from here to Chicago and he will be sorely missed.  

Those of us who will continue the struggle of ensuring the conditions and working rights of workers will certainly miss our colleague in arms and if we know Chuck, he is probably in Heaven organizing a place for us all.
