I think this is terrific. I also wonder if teachers for the the Maryland State Department of Education Juvenile Services could be covered. As it is they all serve as special appointments, have no union and no collective bargaining.

That would have to be added as an amendment or worked as a separate bill.

I recuse myself from this discussion and vote. Please proceed.

All workers should be unionized.
