Florida Education Association Delegates Shoot Down Automatic Dues Increase

No details on this one, but like NEA itself, most state affiliates prefer to have dues levels tied to growth in average teacher salary or some other formula so that increases do not have to be lobbied for and voted on year after year. United Teachers Los Angeles finally overcame that hurdle after years of trying.

A proposed amendment to the Florida Education Association constitution would have made dues increases automatic, but representatives to its delegate assembly voted it down. At least there is one victory for fiscal restraint.
