Pots propose
teacher fines
flor striking
ILANSING (AlP) - Parents or residents of a school district
could ask that fines be imposed on stinking icachcrs undcr a
House hill introduced yesterday.
House Speaker Chuck Perricone (R-Kalamazoo Township),
said the legislation would close a loophole that allowed Detroit
teachers to strike for nine days at the beginning of this school
year without facing the fine of a day's pay for each day of the
"There are a number of school districts that have not yet
signed onto contracts this year" he said. "We really feel we
don't want to have another strike'
Inder the school strike ban passed in 1994, teachers can be
teed after school administrators report the strike to the
Michigan Employment Relations Commission, which the
Detroit district chose not to do.
Perricone said the ouse bill would allo w MERC to fine
teachers even if school administrators fail to report the strike. It
also would allow any school district resident or parent to file a
complaitt requesting the fines after the first day of a strike.
"Detroit Public Schools chief David Adamany told the House
Employment Relations Commitee yesterday momning that
enforcing the 1994 ban on teacher strikes is too costly for a
Qe district since a complaint has to be filed against eveiy
"There would be, more than 8,0001 hear ings. The irtIng of
lawyers for that swould be svey expensive" hi' said.
Perricone said the bill would allow forconsolidated hearings,
which would lower the cost. But Adamany expressed concern
that such hearings would violate teachers' right to due process.
"Maybe swe should be looking at other remedies to teacher
strike Adamany said. "One of those could be a time limit, and
then you could get an injunction" ending the sthike.
,Rep. Paul DeWeese, sponsor of the legislation, said the most
V ittant issue is enforcing the ban on teacher strikes.
"The people of Michigan ,ery nuch value having their stu-
dents in class from day one the Williamson Republican said
think there is broad support for this hill."
But many Democratic leaders said the lase shold be
changed to include binding arbitration, where a third paris
could determine a contract between the teachers and school
Rep. Julie Dennis D-Muskegon), said allowing the district
to determine the contract without giving teachers the option to
strike is not fair d

reputation for excellence and to maintain the

But most importantly, Fleming said, he

that occurred on campus during the '60s and
He cited his 20 years of moonlighting as a
professional arbitrator in labor disputes prior

to joining the University as good experience.
"My official function was to ... get it settled."
Fleming served this same function while at
the University, sometimes coming under harsh
criticism for his choice to dissipate student
demonstrations without the use of police
force. It was "better to go out and talk to
them." he said.

demonstration she witnessed two years ago on
