Iowa Teacher Union Files Suit Against Bargaining Law

In a desperate attempt to keep teachers corralled in their monopoly bargaining contracts, Iowa State Education Association officials have filed suit against the new monopoly bargaining law instead of using their manpower and money (forced dues) to figure out how they can be more responsive to their membership. ISEA President Tammy Wawro disavows the need for a lawsuit, which apparently has already been filed by the union.  Joyce Russell has the story on Iowa Public Radio.

The new law requires all public employee bargaining units to periodically vote to continue to be represented by unions.

“We will look at all avenues to make things right for our members,” said ISEA President Tammy Wawro.  “It’s premature to be talking about a lawsuit.”
