Oklahoma representative proposes bill that would prohibit teacher walkouts [View all]

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.


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’".
