DeSantis Delivers Another Blow to Teachers Unions

Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis is taking on the teachers unions by asking the legislature to eliminate automatic union dues reductions from educator paychecks.

“Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida promised Monday to sign a bill into law that would increase teacher pay by a record amount — but he also wants to clamp down on teachers’ unions. The plan DeSantis outlined at a school board retreat in Orlando would have teachers send a check to their unions every month rather than automatically deduct the dues from their paychecks,” Business Insider reports.

“DeSantis’ plan would create a new hurdle for organized labor in Florida, whose “Right to Work” status is already enshrined in the state constitution. Under current law, Florida workers can opt out of joining a union, which in turn restricts unions from collecting dues from employees who benefit from negotiated worker protections.”

Watch:

In addition, DeSantis is touting Florida as a state respectful of parental rights in education.

    Put NOTHING beyond the willingness of these thugs to silence their opposition. They are that close to government and could ask for and get a blind eye turned on anything they do.
