Maggart Still Prefers Collective Bargaining Ban

 May 10, 2011
Despite her recent move to revert to a weaker version of a ban on collective bargaining among Tennessee teachers, she said she'd still prefer to fully ban collective bargaining.

The unions could negotiate issues such as pay, benefits and working conditions but could not bargain over issues including merit pay — for example, when teachers get paid extra to work at troubled schools.(link)
