Suit Looks To Block Payments To Teacher's Group
A lawsuit has been filed to block state education officials from allowing payroll deductions from public school employees to fund the Alabama Education Association.
A Hoover woman who filed the suit in Shelby County Circuit Court Wednesday says the AEA hasn't ensured that dues being paid by public school employees won't be used to fund Alabama Voices for Teachers for Education, the AEA's political action committee.
Defendants named in the suit include state, city and county education officials and school boards. The suit asks the court to block the group of defendants from authorizing any further payments to the Alabama Education Association, or any other group that hasn't specified that a portion of employees' dues won't be used to fund political activity.
