I'd like to join the proofreader's union.

I didn't have a phone on me, so you'll just have to take my word for it, but today I saw a bumper sticker that read:

Kansas City Federation of Teachers and School Related Personnel

It struck me funny because "school-related" is a compound modifier of the word "personnel," and thus should be hyphenated.

Perhaps the union doesn't include English teachers.
