Union Backers Shout Down Group Suing CTA

Sponsored by:

Sacramento, CA — A small group of teachers and lawyers who are seeking class action status for a lawsuit against the California Teachers Association was drowned out by screams and chants as they tried to hold a news conference outside the union´s office in Sacramento.

The National Right to Work Foundation filed a lawsuit in US District Court in San Jose on behalf of six named teachers and professors. The foundation claims the CTA is illegally collecting a $60 levy in each of the next three years to pay for electioneering.

The union voted to raise dues by that amount in hopes of raising $50 million to pay for a campaign against Propositions 74, 75 and 76 on the November eighth special election ballot.
