Union Negotiations Causes Rift In Maryland

A proposal to make public teachers union negotiations in Maryland’s Frederick County has caused a rift among state Republican lawmakers from the conservative-leaning area.

The proposal was made by state GOP delegate Michael Hough after a county commissioner was not permitted to join discussions between school board and teachers union officials.

Hough argued that taxpayers and elected officials should have access to the talks since public schools account for a large part of the county budget.

If you pay taxes that fund the salaries, you have a right to represent yourself there.
