NWPE Executive Director Cindy Omlin was interviewed on Freedom Daily, a radio show hosted by Freedom Foundation, a public policy organization focused on limited, accountable government, about a bill in the Washington legislature that would allow educators to vote compulsory union dues out of their union negotiated contracts.
Sponsored by Senator Jan Angel, Senate Bill 5045 would allow teachers to petition the state to conduct an election to deauthorize the union security clause, language in a collective bargaining agreement which forces teachers to pay union dues whether they want to join the union or not.
Listen to the interview to learn why the bill is so important as well as other teacher bargaining options such as local only teacher unions.
