Lawsuit Claims Union Spends Teachers’ Money On Politics


Nice. About time this got taken to court. Should be interesting, but it is liberal California.
Check it out:

A group of teachers is suing to stop the California teachers union from collecting mandatory agency fees from non-members and spending the money on political activity.

The 10 teachers named in the lawsuit are not members of union. But they still pay agency fees to the California Teachers Association, which they claim uses the money to lobby for political causes, allegedly violating the teachers’ First Amendment rights.

“The state is compelling the payment of dues to support beliefs with which our clients disagree,” said Terry Pell, president of the Center for Individual Rights, a conservative legal group representing the teachers, in an interview with The Daily Caller News Foundation.
