(Indianapolis, IN) - Three teachers unions in Indiana are challenging a new state law that they say curtails the collection of union dues.
The law, which goes into effect July 1, creates a new system for renewing union dues payments. Teachers will have to fill out state-provided forms and submit them to school administrators, rather than deal directly with their union. The teachers unions contend that such a process is not required for other unionized workers in Indiana.
Three unions, in Anderson, Avon, and Martinsville, filed a federal lawsuit against the state this week.
