State Teachers Union Asks For Probe Into Union Dues Email
Sacramento, CA — The state´s largest teachers union has asked district attorneys in three counties to investigate an email sent to more than 90,000 teachers by supporters of Proposition 75, the union dues measure on the November ballot.
The California Teachers Association says the email from the Yes on 75 campaign illegally used school district resources for a political campaign.
The message was sent Wednesday and urged teachers to vote for the initiative, which would require unions to get their members´ annual written permission before dues could be used for political purposes.
The union says the email violates the law because it was received by teachers on their school district computers. Supporters of the measure say the law applies only to employees and government bodies.
