Oklahoma representative proposes bill that would prohibit teacher walkouts

Source: KFOR-TV

OKLAHOMA CITY – After thousands of Oklahoma teachers walked out of the classroom last year, an Oklahoma state representative has proposed a bill that would prohibit teachers from going on strike again.

Last March, the Oklahoma Education Association announced that it was seeking a $10,000 pay raise for Oklahoma teachers over three years, a $5,000 pay raise for support professionals over three years, a cost-of-living adjustment for retirees, and the restoration of funding for education and core government services.

---snip---

House Bill 2214 would make it illegal for “the board of education or school district employees…to strike or threaten to strike or otherwise close schools or interfere with school operations as a means of resolving differenced with the board of education, the State Department of Education, the State Board of Education, the Legislature or any other public official or public body.”

If a person violated the law by engaging in a strike, they “shall be denied the full amount of his or her wages during the period of such violation.”

The bill goes on to say that if the person is certified by the State Board of Education, “such certificate shall be permanently revoked.”

We just replaced the "worst governor" in the US, Mary Fallin and replaced her with an even more right-wing POS, Kevin Stitt who is mission is not to make the state function correctly, but to "Align ‘With What G-d Is Doing in Oklahoma’".

FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!

4. It can also get repealed later

when and if such a law makes its way through to enactment - but it will generate a lot of solidarity between libs and moderates.

Whenever someone says we can't afford good public education in this country, I always tell them that bombing and rebuilding schools in other countries is more expensive. Not only that, but you invest and get returns later. Anybody that knows anything about money or investing knows that if you want something to succeed, you pour money into it. The more you believe in it, the more money you put into it. Not telling you anything you don't already know, Ancianita, but here in Arizona, we are much like Oklahoma. We feel the same pain.

15. A Better Bill

Representatives have to take a basic civics quiz every year; if they flunk they are removed from office after being marched down the street wearing dunce caps* to the jeers of the crowd.

*old style pointy dunce caps, not the modern red baseball-cap version

16. Public Safety Personnel Can't Strike, But They Have Binding Arbitration...

 

… and binding arbitration is usually an advantage to the union.

You can bargain to impasse and then enter binding arbitration in which the arbitrator imposes a settlement.

In Massachusetts, police and fire personnel use this to great advantage.

If this is put into the bill, the teachers would be in pretty good shape, as long as the arbitrator is mutually agreed upon.

17. Good luck with that revoking certificates business

Teacher shortage is nationwide and disproportionately effects poor and rural states like Oklahoma. If you start taking away qualified teachers' certificates who's going to teach your kids genius?

Oh wait, I forgot, you probably don't care because you have no respect for facts or knowledge... just so long as whoever it is doesn't teach them about evolution or climate change or that the Civil War was about slavery!
