to happen when I participate in emailing campaigns.

By not disagreeing that the block may have been done by shutting down Board members incoming email on certain days, rather than by use of an anti-spam filter, and by saying you can't comment on the technical specifics, you are admitting that what happened may be a case of the intended recipients selectively being denied access to email connected with the legitimate exercise of the duties of their jobs. Their jobs are to participate in setting conditions and compensation for the school district's employees.

And you insist on claiming that without doubt that legally equates to blocking spam.

Isn't the issue whether the district superintendent and/or chair of the Board (I no longer remember who ordered the email blocked) has the right to order job-related email to be witheld from Board members w/o their knowledge, not whether the system administrator is somehow liable for implementing the block? We seem to have both freedom of speech and freedom of association violations here. The situation would be very different if the Board members were aware of the campaign and asked for the block themselves, IMO.

Fortunately you are not the union's civil liberties lawyer or the judge who may hear the case.
