Action Alert: Teachers unions bill, SB 1094 today


Posted by AzBlueMeanie:

As Craig McDermott posted yesterday, the Senate Government and Environment Committee has on its agenda today SB1094, attacking teachers unions by outlawing third-party payroll deductions for school district employees unless those deductions are each authorized annually.

Progress Now requests your action on this bill:

There is an important hearing on an ALEC today at the Arizona State Senate.  The Senate Government and Environment Committee will hear Senate Bill 1094 (school employees; paycheck deductions; authorization) at 2 p.m. today in Senate Hearing Room 3. This "paycheck deception" legislation, which would makes it harder for members of labor organizations to express their free speech rights, has been ALEC model legislation since 1998. You can watch the hearing online here.

For those of you with an ALIS account you can testify online.
