Freedom Foundation Files Lawsuits to Protect Public Employees from Union Forgery

Government employee union bosses love to brag of the deep concern they have for their members and insist the dues they pilfer from hardworking Americans’ paychecks are a mere drop in the bucket compared to the benefits they receive in return.

Their façade is exposed, however, when the unions decide that what’s actually in the best interest of the public sector employees is to commit forgery.

This week, Freedom Foundation filed two lawsuits in Washington and one in Oregon on behalf of public sector employees who were not only denied their constitutionally protected rights to opt out of union membership and dues, but who also had their names forged on the documents that authorized their paycheck deductions in the first place.
