Rutherford County teachers file state complaint

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) -- The Rutherford County teachers group has filed a formal complaint over the way the state now allows bargaining over pay.

Torian Hodges-Finch, president of the Rutherford Education Association, told WPLN radio that under "collaborative conferencing," there is no way to enforce what was agreed to.

The group filed a formal complaint with the state board of education.

District officials say they are not obligated to have any sort of legal agreement with teachers and that their policies and procedures are sufficient.

The state legislature banned collective bargaining in 2011.
