Teachers' union bill
The Tennessee Tea Party emailed an alert about 20 House Republicans in March 2011 for refusing to take a strong public stand on a dominating issues: teachers’ union collective bargaining.
The Tennessee Tea Party's “action alert” encouraged Tennesseans sympathetic to their cause to pressure middle-of-the-road Republicans to get on board with conservative efforts to ban collective bargaining for public school teachers.
“I generally don’t take a firm stand on a bill until it’s completed, especially if there’s a great chance it’s going to be amended,” said Rep. Vince Dean.
Dean added that the legislation still has a long way to go before becoming law.
“I was trying to follow his lead, and I think that was the commendable thing to do on this issue in particular,” said Campbell. “I didn’t campaign on it, it wasn’t part of my agenda and I think there are bigger matters facing us, like the economy, jobs, and the need to pass a balanced budget, which we of course have to do.”
Rep. Mark Pody said he’s in the process of informally polling teachers in his district to see whether or not they favor union collective bargaining.
Pody and his wife, Barbara, have two children. They currently reside in Lebanon, Tennessee.
