Rhee Drops $500K to Fight Collective Bargaining

You know... it's for the kids!
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. –’s political action committee has donated $500,000 to the campaign against the union-backed Proposal 2, with the organization’s leaders saying they wants to preserve school reforms.

The proposal, also called Protect Our Jobs and Protect Working Families, would enshrine collective bargaining in the state constitution, invalidating existing or future state or local laws that limit the ability to join unions.

Critics, including Attorney General Bill Schuette, said about 170 state laws would be affected.

StudentsFirst, an advocacy group based in Sacramento, Calif, “strongly supports collective bargaining for teachers,” but supports some of the limits on what unions could negotiate.
