Teachers Decry Unions’ “Unfair” Privilege

Ellwood City public school teacher John Cress is speaking up against the forced political speech he had to pay for via his union dues to the Pennsylvania State Education Association: “I don’t think anybody should have to contribute to any type of political interest group as a condition of their employment.”

Retired teacher Bill Frye agrees, calling the system of school districts and other government entities collecting union dues and political action committee money for a private organization “grossly unfair.”
