I have worked under a union in another district and I found it to be a regrettable experience. There are many negatives… high dues, worse benefits and loss of freedoms just to begin with. My question would be what are some of the negatives that are often not thought about or discussed but once you work under union conditions you fall prey to every day. I personally think MANY teachers will be shocked and disappointed once they are continually told no to things they used to do freely and want to do but now cannot because of ‘union rules’. Clovis teachers have lived under such freedoms with healthy, trusting, respected guidelines and they have no idea what they are about to lose only to gain a bit more money.
