The Freedom Foundation is off to a great start in 2022 as it continues to calculate the success of its most recent campaign to free public employees from union bondage
In the last month of 2021, the Freedom Foundation outreach team helped nearly 4,500 public employees cease their union dues deductions forever. This was largely due to a major Christmas outreach push to inform public employees they could save hundreds of dollars over the next year if they choose to opt out now.
This included hundreds of thousands of mailers and e-mails, while Freedom Foundation canvassers spoke with thousands of public employees at their workplaces and homes.
You can see a sample copy of both the e-mail and mailer below.
On top of our regular canvassing efforts, we also sent our elves to canvass the east coast & spread the good news about Janus V. AFSCME. More on that story can be found here.
In addition to outreach efforts, the Freedom Foundation also took a moment to send a gift to the worst of the worst unions throughout the country.
While 4,500 opt-outs may sound like a massive number in one month (and it is), the larger story is the financial impact this will have on large unions across the country. Our one-month haul will strip these unions of between $3.6 and $4.5 million in revenue every year.
More importantly, that’s millions of dollars back into the workers pocket and out of their union boss’s piggy bank.
We won’t slow down now and rest on our laurels. We set our single-month all time high for opt-outs at the end of 2021, which only means we have to work even harder to beat it again in 2022.
