DENVER (UPI) - Colorado teachers have been given the right to collective bargaining for future contracts under a bill approved by the House, but it now goes to the Republican- dominated Senate where it could be in trouble. Minority Republicans joined Democrats in the House Wednesday in support of the bill, but many said they hoped the Senate would modify it.

TRIBUNE 17 Mother of two still fighting busing order totally unacceptable. "I'm going to vote for this bill, which I didn't think would happen," said House Minority Leader Ron Strahle, R-Port Collins.

Although collective bargaining has been used several years, problems were created by a recent court decisions questioning the process. "The order we are achieving Wyoming briefs CHEYENNE (UPI) - The director of preventive medicine for the Wyoming Division of Health and Medical Services said the incidence of influenza appears to be declining in the state with no reports of the new strain of swine influenza. Dr. U.S. Parish said no cases of swine influenza have been reported in Wyoming and the outbreak apparently has been limited to New Jersey.

Tne GOP county convention also approved a resolution that the state encourage industries which cause minimum impact and furnish good jobs for Wyoming residents.

A L K I R E ' S 1211 9th St. 352-9501 in this bill turns out to be better than the chaos we have now," Strahle said. The bill provides collective bargaining on all conditions of employment for teachers and non-supervisory school personnel from kindergarten through grade 12. The bill provides mediation of contract disputes and allows strikes if disputes were not settled. An amendment required all negotiating sessions be open. The bill also required the Department of Labor to take responsibility for the bargaining process. The bill also allowed agency shops, which would force all teachers within a bargaining unit to pay union dues, if 60 per cent of the teachers voted for the requirement. The bill won final approval by a 47-16 margin and was sent to the Senate where it was expected to undergo major revisions. Rep. Don Friedman, R- Denver, criticized the bill. although he said he believed in collective bargaining. He said bargaining had an "inherent flaw" in the public sector because teachers would be able to choose through elections their bargaining counterparts -- the school boards. Rep. Carl Showalter, R- Greeley, said he believed teachers should not be protected both by tenure and collective bargaining. "Hopefully, this can be resolved in the Senate, and the bill can come back to us as something we can live with," Showalter said. Rep. Sandy Arnold, R- Boulder, praised the bill and said he thought it was excellent that local school district could determine the scope or issues to consider during negotiations. "I think the scope section in this bill is super," Arnold said. "I would like to remind members of the House that working conditions for teachers are learning conditions for children." By DAVID ESPO Associated Press Writer DENVER (AP)-Carol Pinson says she's not going to "hand over" her children to Denver public school officials, who are threatening court action to force her to allow her two second-grade daughters to board buses under a court desegregation plan. "Doesn't a citizen have a right to challenge a law anymore, or are we supposed tc* lay down and let them rol! over us," Mrs. Pinson said Wednesday. "I'm supposed to hand my children over to them and I'm not going to do it." For over a month, Mrs. Pinson has waged a one-family war 1 against the city's busing program. Under the court-approved plan, her daughters, Anna Mae, 7, and Kimberly Rae, 8, are required to spend the morning at the school near their home before being bused to another school for the afternoon. The two girls are accepted as regular class members only during the morning session. In the afternoon, in the same classrooms under their mother's orders, they are given the silent treatment by their teachers. Told to sit quietly at the back of the class, they're denied participation in classroom activities, not allowed to recite or turn in homework. Mrs. Pinson spends her afternoons in school, keeping her daughters company at the back of the class. Although they are both in second grade, the girls are enrolled in different classrooms. School district officials, puzzling for over a month about how to handle Mrs. Pinson's protest, intend to force the issue in Denver Juvenile Court, a school board lawyer said Wednesday. Richard Cockrell said thedis- I'rict planned to send the Pin- sons a letter notifying them that if they don't let their daughters ride the buses, a Juvenile Court order will be sought under the state's compulsory school attendance act. If the parents still refuse to comply, Cockrell said, the court can issue a direct order. Further refusal on the part of Mrs. Pinson and her husband, Kenneth, could lead to a finding of delinquency against the chil- dren. Although Cockrell said such a finding was "unlikely" in view of the girls' ages, the court could find the parents in contempt and order them jailed until they comply. Cockrell said the first notice would be sent to the Pinsons "before the week is over." But Mrs. Pinson, who says she would leave the city before allowing her children to be bused, said, "I understand it would be a truancy finding. My kids aren't truant. I've got the school work to prove they're in Since word of Mrs. Pinson's fight against "forced busing" became known last month, she has received offers of legal help as well as letters of en- couragement from around the country.
