On Tuesday, a Marion County public employee filed the latest in a growing number of lawsuits accusing government employee labor unions of forging signatures on membership documents in order to continue deducting dues against the worker’s wishes.
In the days leading up to Super Tuesday, members of the American Federation of State County and Municipal Employees Local 75 (AFSCME 75) and the Oregon School Employees Association (OSEA) received pieces of mail and emails using the union’s own words to showcase their lies.
When you consider the unions themselves are responsible for the latter — they and their cronies first broke, then weakened those public records laws in a whopping three out of the last five years — it becomes clear their only goal is to suppress all communication to public employees except their own.
For most of his 10 years as an Oregon state employee, Christopher Zielinski paid his union dues without a beef and had no reason to question the quality of representation he was getting from SEIU 503.
The leaders of Service Employees International Union (SEIU) 503 have spent the past year vehemently denying a June 2018 U.S. Supreme Court
On Wednesday, nine Oregon public employees, represented by Freedom Foundation and National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation attorneys, filed their appeal of an Oregon District Court decision in Anderson, et al. v. SEIU, et al.
It’s bad enough when public-sector unions by themselves flout the the clearly expressed will of the Supreme Court. But it’s even worse when they get an assist from lower courts.
