Kansas female reps urged to take safety precautions over union vote

Kansas Rep. Stephanie Clayton tweeted yesterday that female representatives were being urged to take extra security precautions in the face of a vote on a bill that would make collective bargaining optional for school boards and prohibit the Kansas National Education Association from using voluntary paycheck donations for political advocacy.

Getting briefed on 2023. Women legislators are urged to use back steps. All legislators urged to remove nametags tomorrow. #ksleg

Clayton, a Republican, took some flack for her tweets, which some argued were a ploy to make unions look bad.

@sscjocoksYou are creating a situation to discredit the Unions while you strip away their rights.

@jeanschodorf Please do your research about people before making assumptions.

@sscjocoks Are people really that afraid of “union thugs” like the 60ish elementary school librarian @neasmfritz, president of our local?

@sscjocoks That is absolutely ridiculous.

To clarify: #ksleg advised to be careful tomorrow due to vote on HB 2023. *I* am not afraid of ppl expressing 1st amendment rights.

@sscjocoks Of course not.There’s no way you’d help to propagate the mythology of teachers as union thugs.
