Indiana Bills Takes Aim At Exclusive Representation and Retaliation
The fact that teachers are forced into unwanted representation in school districts where teacher union officials exercise exclusive representation is often overlooked when speaking of teacher freedom. A bill in the Indiana legislature would foster more transparency about representation for teachers and taxpayers. Darcy Costello has the story in the Journal Gazette Indiana.
Indiana lawmakers are considering a measure that requires state officials to publicize the percentage of teachers who are union members and, in some cases, inform them that they can get rid of or change that representation.
Supporters contend the bill is an effort to make the process of changing representation more transparent for teachers.
