Union Bosses Upset At Congressman’s ProtectingOurWorkers.com
April 4th 2012 · 0 Comments
Apparently, union bosses don’t like it when a website is critical of their dues-for-politics schemes, according to the Huffington Post:
Union activists generally don’t consider House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) to be an ally in labor struggles, so many were surprised Wednesday morning to see that Issa’s GOP-led committee had launched a new website to promote workers’ rights.
Upon closer inspection, however, labor activists came to see what they considered a distinct anti-union flavor of the website, ProtectingOurWorkers.com. Pitched as a platform to listen “directly to rank-and-file union workers,” the site includes three stories told in workers’ own words, and all of the workers are critical of their own unions: the National Education Association (NEA), the United Auto Workers and the Service Employees International Union.
The site was apparently built off of a February oversight hearing on required union dues — a pet peeve of many anti-union conservatives, who claim the money is used for left-leaning political ends.
