  4. Oklahoma state legislator proposes draconian bill aimed against teacher strikes

    A member of the Oklahoma State House of Representatives has put forward a bill that would dock teachers’ wages and revoke their teaching certificates for life should they engage in another similar protest like the nine-day protest in March of 2018. House Bill 2214 would make it “illegal” to “strike or threaten to strike or otherwise close schools or interfere with school operations as a means of resolving differences…”

    The bill’s author, Republican Todd Russ, sees the bill as closing a loophole that technically allowed teachers to skirt Oklahoma’s ban on striking. Instead of striking, teachers informed administrators they would be absent, with the result that schools had to be closed by district officials due to insufficient staff.

    Russ, who is chairman of the House Banking and Financial Services Committee and also serves on the Appropriations and Budget Committee, mentioned the air traffic controllers as an example of how his bill would curb any job actions by teachers. When PATCO, the union representing air traffic controllers, went on strike in 1981, then-President Ronald Reagan fired 11,500 controllers, decertified their union and imposed a lifetime ban barring them from working for the Federal Aviation Administration in their former capacity.
