Take Action to Limit Union Abuse

In 2018, after the Supreme Court said in Janus v. AFSCME that every public employee in the country had the First Amendment right to choose whether or not to pay a union, many union officials turned their focus to preventing existing members from leaving and they looked to friendly politicians for help. Since then, rules have been enacted and legislation has been passed limiting the First Amendment rights of public employees.

But while unions and their allies have worked to limit employees’ rights, we are here to help employees overcome the tricks used by unions and lawmakers. Here, you’ll find ways you can get involved in issues across the country. See a list below of active and previous campaigns.

Active Campaigns

Virginia

On May 1st, 2021, a Virginia state law went into effect that enabled local governing bodies to engage in collective bargaining with its employees. As a result, government unions can directly contact public employees — teachers, first responders, and county and city employees — for support in certifying the union as their official representative at work.

End Union Corruption

Are you sick of union corruption getting in the way of workplace progress? Unions need to be held accountable for dubious actions. Without accountability, unions fail to do their job and represent their members effectively.
