Is Indiana Senator Ed Charbonneau Anti Union?

Indiana Senate Bill 575 takes away bargaining rights from our school teachers by limiting the bargaining to only wages and benefits.

It does not allow bargaining over working conditions.

Can you imagine working for some misguided, uncaring, nincompoop administrator in a school system and not being allowed to straighten that person out through collective bargaining?

Not all schools have nitwit administrators but when you have one with no common sense, you need to be able to negotiate changes in working conditions.

The saddest thing about this piece of right wing nutty Republican legislation is that my own State Senator is one of the authors and or sponsor.

Ed Charbonneau, from Indiana Senate District 5 is a sponsor of this bill and that really tees me off. This guy should know better.
