Washington Government Union Dues Deduction Moratorium

The Freedom Foundation has asked governors across the nation to temporarily suspend government union dues deductions for a minimum of three months.

This action would keep $60 million in the hands of Washington’s public employees and the state’s economy without costing taxpayers a dime.

Government unions across the nation are brimming with cash and are one of the few entities not being affected by the current crisis – they should be offering to take this action themselves to take care of their members.

Why, other than favoritism, should government unions continue to cash checks and engage in partisan politics at a time when small businesses and working people – including the workers these unions claim to represent – struggle to cope with the current emergency?

Join us in urging Governor Inslee to place a moratorium on government union dues deductions.
