May 11, 2009
Suit seeks to force governor to pay what is owed to schools

From The San Francisco Chronicle: Two of California's smaller education unions, unwilling to wait for voters to decide May 19 whether to authorize more than $9 billion in education funds, have sued to force the state to pay money they say is owed to schools. The California Federation of Teachers, representing about 100,000 educators in schools and community colleges, and the 37,000-member Service Employees International Union local that represents janitors, clerks, bus drivers, and other school workers, filed the legal challenge in San Francisco.
