Maryland teachers union
wants nonmembers to pay fee

Washington Examiner, by Andy Brownfield

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/14/2013 11:47:19 AM

Maryland´s largest teachers union wants school employees who aren´t members of a union to pay union fees. Del. Sheila Hixson, D-Montgomery County, will introduce a bill on behalf of the Maryland State Education Association to require nonunion educators to pay a so-called fair share fee to unions equivalent to about 68 percent of the local dues. Under Maryland law, local teachers unions are required to negotiate contracts that cover all educators, whether or not they are members of the union. They also must represent nonunion educators in grievances. Association spokesman Adam Mendelson said the bill wouldn´t

Comments:
They want nonunion educators to pay a fair share fee?? That sure takes alot of chutzpah! The insanity coming from these insane radicals is extremely tiresome. They just never quit.

Things like this are just getting completely out of hand and I fear that we may soon see this whole society hit a wall where people who actually produce and who are interested in actually doing a good job finally get sick and tired of listening to crud like this and being threatened by union slugs and are finally going to fight back...

...but not with heated words.

I see no problem with negotiating for all teachers, but if they have to represent those who are not union members when there is a problem that is a conflict of interest. Perhaps they should not be required to represent non-members and those non members should purchase liability insurance. That is what teachers here in Oklahoma do when they choose not to join the union. It is very inexpensive insurance.

If this law is passed, sue the unions! Force them to state what portion of their outlays are for working directly for the employees, and what portion is for lobbying. I bet 68% is an overestimate, by far.

I actually agree with the concept. However... the teacher´s union must make its books public, and be audited by a recognised independent auditing firm. The fee paid by any non-union teacher would be the direct cost of the negotiations, not union leadership salaries and benefits, political expenses and the myriad other garbage extracted as dues.

#9 writes that the plan seems okay as long as "[t]he fee paid by any non-union teacher would be the direct cost of the negotiations..."

The problem with that ideal is that the negotiations themselves (and "agreements" arrived at) have hidden costs, costs the non-union member may wish to oppose. Union agreements typically extort "benefits" by means of lost management flexibility, lost job opportunity or advancement for new and younger employees, loss of accountability to parents and taxpayers, higher taxes, etc.

This is the opposite of what the voters in Michigan and Wisconsin just achieved! They finally got out of having the unions´ taking non-member´s money to use for their own greedy means. The people of Maryland have this right and the unions want to take it away. They want to change it so they can legally steal from non-union members.

Not sure if this is a way to get teachers at charter schools to pay into the union (we don´t current;y) but the union does NOT negotiate anything for charter school teachers.

One of the reasons charters work so much better than other public schools is that we do NOT have the union. If a teacher sucks, they´re gone--sometimes the next DAY!

They aren´t perfect, but charters provide choice. Let´s not mess that up by bringing them under union control.

A union is the exclusive bargaining representative for all of the member of the bargaining unit, members or not. If the union allowed non members to settle their own grievances with the employer, all sorts of bad precedents would be established. There is also case law, going back to 1945, called the duty of fair representation, coming out of a steelworkers´ case in Alabama, where a black worker didn´t get promoted, and the union declined to represent him.

What Maryland is proposing is called Agency Shop, where non members pay fees for the costs of representation. Pennsylvania has that already, and in the 14 state university system, the agency fee is about 95% of regular dues.

I don´t think the union spends one iota of time representing nonunion members. Nonunion members do not vote in union elections, and don´t give a whit about the union. If nonunion members want representation, they can elect representative among themselves, thank you.

Ukrainian protesters tore through towns all over their nation, ripping down statues of Vladimir Lenin, the communist dictator who had forced the Ukrainians under the Russian yoke after the Bolshevik revolution. The Ukrainians drove their corrupt, pro-Russian President Viktor Yanukovich from the capitol of Kiev, while the opposition leader former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko was freed from prison. Amazing images of protesters tearing down the iconic face of socialism V.I. Lenin (also known as Vladimir Ulyanov) erupted into a fury on social media last night.

The University of Notre Dame must provide birth control to employees and students after a federal appeals court ruled Friday, a move the school says will force it to violate its religious beliefs. In a blow to religious colleges and universities across the country, the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago denied Notre Dame´s request for an injunction to the ObamaCare birth control mandate that requires the school to provide coverage for contraception. The injunction would have given Notre Dame a temporary reprieve from the birth control mandate, as the Roman Catholic school challenges the rule in court.

A renewed push at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for net neutrality rules could solidify a major expansion of the agency’s authority over the Internet. Earlier this year, the D.C. Circuit Court of appeals overturned the FCC’s “Open Internet Order,” which kept Internet providers from blocking or slowing access to certain websites, on the grounds that the agency had overstepped its authority. But in a major win for the FCC, the court said the agency could rewrite the rules under Section 706 of the Telecommunications Act, which deals with broadband adoption. Now FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler is seizing on the

A federal judge in Newark has tossed a lawsuit brought by eight Muslims who claimed the NYPD´s post-9/11 surveillance of their mosques, schools, and other community locations violated their civil rights. Instead, U.S. District Judge William Martini ruled that there was no harm done until the Associated Press reported on the program (earning itself a Pulitzer Prize along the way). "The Associated Press covertly obtained the materials and published them without authorization," he wrote. "Thus the injury, if any existed, is not fairly traceable to the city." Judge Martini said the plaintifs were not targeted for their religion. "The more

Defense Department officials acknowledged to Fox News that Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, while speaking to a Jewish congregation at a Maryland synagogue on Tuesday, appeared to have misstated the administration´s policy on Iran -- by saying the country should not be allowed the "capacity" to develop a nuclear weapon. "So that´s the position of this administration; it was the position of the Bush administration -- that´s unequivocal. That´s stated -- it´s clear," Hagel said at the Beth El synagogue in Bethesda, Md. But Hagel was mistaken, and it´s not the first time he has misspoken about the United States´ nuclear

The electricity price index soared to a new high in January 2014 with the largest month-to-month increase in almost four years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Meanwhile, data from the Energy Information Administration, a division of the U.S. Department of Energy, indicates that electricity production in the United States has declined since 2007, when it hit its all-time peak. The U.S. is producing less electricity than it did seven years ago for a population that has added more than 14 million people. “The electricity index rose 1.8 percent, its largest increase since March 2010,” said BLS in its

“Proposed FCC study of news organizations sparks conservative outcry,” The Washington Post declared on Friday. The story revealed details of the backlash against a Federal Communications Commission plan to investigate the news-gathering and information dissemination practices of a variety of print and broadcast media outlets. The Post quickly amended that headline, as someone decided the study should have sparked a general “outcry,” even though it apparently did not –- at least, not in The Post’s newsroom. Still, some bright fellow at The Post noted that this latest encroachment by the federal government should be met with at least a perfunctory protest

The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation announced Friday it will continue to monitor rain and snowfall, but at this point there´s not enough water in the Central Valley Project to give water to farmers. Last year, Central Valley farmers received 20 percent of their normal allowance, and that figure is now set at zero percent. This marks the third dry year for the state, and Gov.

President Obama’s stimulus may have boosted the economy when it passed in 2009, but it’s now beginning to take a toll and will soon begin to leave the economy worse off than if it had never passed, according to a new report Friday by the Congressional Budget Office. Mr. Obama signed the stimulus into law five years ago this week, vowing it would help rescue the economy from its post-Wall Street collapse tailspin, and saying it would save millions of jobs. The CBO said it’s been successful at that, helping sustain between 700,000 and 3.6 million jobs at its peak
