A hard-hitting article from the Columbian's Elizabeth Hovde:

"...But thanks to state attorney generals past and present, along with several determined teachers and right-to-work organizations, the question is now before the U.S. Supreme Court. Early surmise says individual teachers will win this round, not the union....
...(T)he Legislature and the WEA should be motivated to end the legal wrangling once and for all by making union dues optional in Washington state. No one should be required to pay a union to work as a school employee. It's undemocratic. With optional unionism, the WEA would have more freedom over how it spends its dollars. And if the union is as valuable to school employees as it boasts, it won't have any trouble getting people to sign up. It could lobby for all the campaigns and candidates it wanted without ever being accused of hijacking employees' wages for off-base political purposes."
