Here’s something you don’t see too often – picketing in downtown Pierre, South Dakota. Professional staffers of the South Dakota Education Association walked the line outside the union’s headquarters yesterday over a contract dispute.
The press report notes there was only a “handful” of employees, but that’s the basis of the dispute. “The professional staff has been reduced from 10 to six over the past three years,” said staffer Michael Brubaker.
SDEA is down to 5,251 active K-12 members, a three percent drop from 2004.
