MI union teachers shut down school to protest
Posted by Staff
The Taylor School District will be closed down Tuesday because of the high number of staff that have either called in sick or are taking personal days to attend rallies in Lansing.

Superintendent Diane Allen told Local 4 there isn’t enough teachers to cover classrooms, so the all schools will be closed for the day. She said she had heard from a principal about where the teachers were going.

She didn’t immediately give an exact number of staff who had called off work.

The state House and Senate approved bills last week that would prohibit requiring non-union employees to financially support unions at their workplace.
