Teacher's and State Employee's Right to Strike for Improvement of Working Conditions and Education sign now

Bill H166 is a direct attack on our teachers, public employees, and their rights as workers.

In this bill all public employees including teachers etc., are not allowed to strike in the state of Missouri. A quote from section 105.530. of the bill concerning the matter of striking is as follows "[Nothing contained in sections 105.500 to 105.530 shall be construed as granting a right to employees covered in sections 105.500 to 105.530 to strike.]

1. It shall be unlawful for public employees to strike. If a strike occurs, the public body may initiate in the circuit court of jurisdiction where the strike occurs, an action for injunctive relief.

2. It shall be unlawful for any public body to authorize, consent to or condone an illegal strike; or to pay or agree to pay any public employee for any day in which the employee participates in an illegal strike; or to pay or agree to pay any increase in compensation or benefits to any public employee in response to or as a result of any illegal strike or any act which violates this act. It shall be unlawful for any official, director or representative of any public body to authorize, ratify or participate in any violation of this subsection. Nothing in this subsection shall prevent new or renewed bargaining and agreement within the scope of negotiations as defined by this act, at any time after a violation of this subsection has ceased. as stated in section 11 of the bill."

This Bill prevents teachers from demanding the right to fight for a better environment for students to learn and better work environment for all public employees. An argument for taking the right to strike away from teachers is that it will disrupt learning for the children, but not only is it a right for every worker to be able to strike, but also it is the only tool teachers have (outside of protests that have little to no effect) to fight back against school closings and cutbacks ETC. How can teachers educate when their tool for protecting the quality of education is taken away.

We cannot call ourselves a free and fair society when a workers right to strike is being taken away. We demand that teachers and state workers must be allowed to the right to strike, without any punishment from the state or school administration and all employees must receive normal pay during the strike. We present this petition to Missouri's House of Representatives to say that our educator's deserve the right to strike.
