Iowa Teachers Stuck with Unwanted Representation

Despite the change in Iowa’s public sector bargaining laws, some teachers will still be forced to undergo union representation they did not vote for. Briana PFannenstiel has the story in the Des Moines Register.

Thirteen bargaining units representing nearly 1,300 Iowa teachers and faculty have voted overwhelmingly to maintain their union affiliations in the first wave of elections required under Iowa’s new collective bargaining laws.

Iowa Public Employment Relations Board staff tallied votes Tuesday, as the two-week voting period drew to a close.
