Free Idaho Teachers!
Idaho teacher union officials are opposing a secret ballot bill which would allow teachers to decide whether or not to become a union member and be represented by the union before the school board. Idaho is a Right to Work state so teaches are not required to join a union in order to get or keep their jobs. Nate Sunderland has the story in eastidahonews.com.
One Idaho legislator says a “false news narrative” is driving opposition to a proposed bill that would ensure secret ballot voting within teacher’s associations.
“I’ve had people contact me, and they are talking about issues that aren’t even related to the bill,” said freshman Rep. Dorothy Moon. “When I ask if they’ve read the bill, they haven’t. They are just spouting talking points from the union.”
