Its not just a radio or TV tactic.
There are real consequences that can happen as a result of this misguided Union takeover venture (PROP 2) of our constitution.
Attorney General Bill Schuette on Thursday raised concerns about the devastating impact Proposal 2 would have on the safety of children in Michigan's public schools. His remarks come on the heels of new and misleading ads falsely claiming that Proposal 2 would not impact the safety of Michigan's schools and classrooms. Schuette was joined by Midland County Sheriff Jerry Nielsen and Eaton County Sheriff Mike Raines. Schuette said:
"The fact is and the truth is, Proposal 2 will undermine 170 laws, including critical measures intended to keep children safe in our schools. A huge concern for parents is preserving the safety of their children both to and from school, and in the classroom. The legislature passed laws which provide safety tools like background checks to detect criminal records and drug or alcohol abuse before prospective employees set foot inside a school.
According to Proposal 2's own language, Michigan parents, voters and lawmakers would be permanently prohibited from "limit(ing) the right to collectively bargain for wages, hours and other terms and conditions of employment." Schuette noted the broad language of the proposal would allow collective bargaining agreements to override laws like Public Act 103 of 2011, which prohibits collective bargaining over teacher discipline policies to keep kids safe from teachers who abuse drugs and alcohol, and Public 187 of 1990, which establishes minimum training and continuing education requirements for people operating school buses.
