force teachers to buy only the unions professional liability insurance.
In WI school districts were forced to buy health coverage through a union owned company. After we got act 10 passed which prevented that in contracts we found out that premiums were 2-3 times higher through the union company.
Don’t know about the “2-3 times higher” bit.
I spent six months in Milwaukee in 2011, at the height of all the Act 10 excitement.
I remember hearing that the cost of an insurance policy through the teacher’s union insurance company was $25,000 per year. When they lost their sole-source contract (as an aside, how many of them screamed about the evils of Halliburton and their no-bid contracts?) they immediately dropped their asking price to $16,000. Probably even more with negotiation.
