This bill is a thinly veiled attempt to weaken the voices of our teachers, CPS caseworkers, and other state employees. These are the selfless individuals who have committed themselves to public service with no thought of monetary gain. Let’s face it – they’re not in these jobs for the money.
As Isaac points out, Texas is a right to work state. No one is forced to join a union and they can leave at any time. Payroll deductions do not use taxpayer money, as state law already requires unions to cover the cost.
Unions have long defended the rights of our hardest working civil employees. This bill is an attack on unions and the invaluable individuals that have chosen these unions to represent them.
