Union thugs shout down teachers suing over union electioneering
The National Right to Work Foundation has filed a lawsuit on behalf of six teachers and professors against the California Teachers Association. The suit concerns a $60 fee that the union is charging them in each of the next three years. That money is being used to mount the CTA's campaign against Arnold Schwarzenegger's Propositions 74, 75 and 76.
The NRWF held the press conference outside the union's office.
One hundred teachers and others succeeded in shouting them down and drowning out the press conference: screaming "Shame on you" over and over.
Sen. Tom McClintock, R-Thousand Oaks says:
"This is an example of the kind of intimidation, bullying and thuggery that our public school teachers are enduring (from the union) every day"
They're seeking class action status for the suit.
