Idaho Teachers Union Plans Referendum of Collective Bargaining Bill

Creatas Images/Thinkstock(BOISE, Idaho) -- The Idaho teacher's union announced that it may urge voters to overturn the newly-passed laws limiting collective bargaining rights.

As a last resort, the union is planning on gathering enough signatures to repeal two bills, both of which were signed Thursday by Idaho Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter. The measures eliminate issues like class size from collective bargaining between schools and the Idaho Education Association.

The state teacher's union said the referendum would be included in 2012 elections.
