A crowd of several hundred union members and supporters gathered on Legislative Plaza yesterday, rallying against a House bill that would end collective bargaining rights for teachers' unions.
Ken Whitehouse has the story for The City Paper:
State Rep. Mike Stewart, D-Nashville, was among several legislators on hand to show support for the cause.
“The bill, House Bill 130, is not an education bill,” Stewart told The City Paper. “It is part of a national anti-union effort funded by some national Republicans. One of these days we will learn to stop fighting all our political battles in the schools and let the teachers teach our children.”
