Keep right to collective bargaining
Placeholder Image
From Marcie FrehnerMonroeAs I read the Monroe Times and talk to people on the street, I keep hearing the issue of teachers' salaries and pensions being raised. They say that "people in the private sector don't get full pensions, etc. Why should teachers, especially when these pensions are paid by the taxpayers?" This is such a frustrating argument because the teachers' union has agreed to cuts in pensions and salaries, they just don't want to lose their collective bargaining rights.
