Trustees Pass Anti-Union Resolution

Item: Cd'A board supports anti-union resolution: Right to work prohibits union membership as a job requirement/Maureen Dolan, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: School trustees in Coeur d'Alene on Monday voted unanimously to, as a board, support the Idaho School Boards Association's efforts to lobby state lawmakers for legislation that would tighten Idaho's right to work statute in the state's schools. It was one of the last official acts of the board before June 30, when the terms of three trustees - Ann Seddon, Brent Regan and Jim Hightower - come to an end, and their seats are filled with three newly elected board members. “I was the one that asked to have this included in the agenda,” said Tom Hamilton, board chair. Hamilton said that in order for the Idaho School Boards Association to bring suggested legislation forward in Boise, the organization needs a sponsoring school board.

Question: Do you think this resolution would have passed if the new School Board was in place?
