Union docs predict end to coercive unionism
The largest teachers union in California is preparing for life without forced union membership, as a lawsuit challenging coercive dues makes its way through the legal system.
The California Teachers Association circulated apresentation titled, “Not if, but when: Living in a world without Fair Share,” to union leaders and members in July. The report, which was obtained by a watchdog blogger at the Education Intelligence Agency, predicts that the end is near for automatic union membership in public schools.
The slideshow warns of dire consequences if it loses the ability to collect dues payments from every public school teacher, which could lead to “membership loss … reduced staffing, pressure on CTA pension and benefits system [and] potential financial crisis in locals not positioned to survive loss of revenue.”
