Time and again, the United States Supreme Court has agreed with National Right to Work Foundation staff attorneys that compulsory union dues for politics violate the First Amendment rights of dissenting employees.
While workers in states without Right to Work laws can be required to pay some union dues or fees, independent-minded workers cannot be required to pay for anything unrelated to workplace bargaining, such as union politics.
But scofflaw union bosses routinely ignore the law.
That's why the Foundation provides free legal aid to workers whose attempts to opt out of formal, full-dues-paying union membership are thwarted by greedy union bosses.
In another victory for a victimized worker, a Foundation-assisted bus driver in Illinois just won a settlement ensuring that she will no longer be forced to pay full union dues to keep her job.
She will also receive a refund of all illegally-seized union fees. Learn more about her victory in our latest video update.
With election season heating up, independent-minded workers from across the country may soon face threats or find themselves forced to support a radical political agenda they personally oppose.
Your continued support enables Foundation staff attorneys to spring into action immediately to stop Big Labor's illegal use of forced-dues cash to advance its political agenda. Thank you.
P.S. The Foundation relies completely on voluntary contributions from our supporters to provide free legal aid. Please chip in with a tax-deductible contribution of $10 or more today to support the Foundation's programs.
