School boards threatened with lawsuits over Right to Work

by: Eric B.

Fri Jan 18, 2013 at 11:20:35 AM EST

Someone who serves on one of the state's school boards forwarded this to me. It's a letter from the Foundation for Michigan Freedom which warns of attempts by teachers to intimidate school boards while then threatening lawsuits against individual school board members for playing nice with teachers.

Teacher union bosses are already rushing to bully school boards into extending employee contracts, even those not near expiration, to deny school employees the Freedom to Work and further tie the hands of current and future school boards ...


School boards that are complicit in these efforts and approve new terms for unexpired contracts or extend greater than normal timeframes to new contracts, put public bodies at risk. Such liabilities include: ...

*--Potential litigation against school board members brought by statewide advocacy groups for an undue denial of worker rights and freedoms.

In other words, the Foundation for Michigan Freedom says that if anyone is going to intimidate local school boards, it's going to be the Foundation for Michigan Freedom.

They can do this?
Really!? Will these guys be able to get away with this? Is it possible that all they would need is one taxpayer to join them to have standing?

Considering The Makeup of the Courts
Yeah, probably. Our Michigan Supreme Court is probably the most biased in the country. Heck, when the WSJ flailed praise on the MSC, you need to hold onto your wallets. Constitutional and statutory standards shift with the wind...
