HB 1546, introduced by Rep. Goodrich and co-authored by Rep. Behning, would remove the requirement that, at a teacher’s request, schools withhold union dues from a teacher’s paycheck and would, instead, prohibit schools from withholding such dues from the paycheck. Keep in mind that, per IC 22-2-6, employers can — at an employee’s request — withhold money from a paycheck that an employee wants to send to a nonprofit, use as dues for other types of unions, purchase goods from the employer, repay an employer loan, and a number of other things. So, this prohibition on withholding union dues looks to be nothing more than mean-spirited. Oh, and “an emergency is declared for this act.” Because, of course it is.
