Union bosses continue to abuse workers’ rights by simply ignoring the law. National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation attorneys are helping workers who were unwilling to continue union membership during a strike to recoup a fine of almost $1 million against Local 851 of the International Association of Machinists. Cindy Wojdyla Cain has the [...]
The National Institute for Labor Relations Research has tracked violence incidents since 1975. While much of their information comes from news media accounts, it is obvious that many incidents go unreported, even to police, out of fear of retaliation.

For several weeks, members of the Service Employees [...]
A view from the other side: Union supporter Jonathan Tasini, takes union bosses to task for alienating rank and file members on Working Life. Beginning with the passage of Right to Work in Michigan, . . . concentrating on the fact that Right to Work eliminated the goose that laid the golden egg for union [...]
