Union Bosses Smear Teachers

Union bosses are demonizing one of their own who has dared to disagree with their policies.  Faced with losing billions of dollars at a critical time, union officials, from the AFL_CIO to teacher union officials themselves, all are desperate to keep their forced-dues windfall operating.  Friedrichs v. CTA, a case currently before the Supreme Court, may free all government employees from paying forced dues, giving them Right to Work privileges, even in the absence of a state Right to Work law. Their tactics, including blatant lies, are a reflection of their desperation.  As government employee unions are the fastest-growing sector unions nowadays, the prospect of Friedrichs v. CTA  has all union bosses on the warpath.  How much darker can money get if you take if you take it from workers’ pockets?  Jason Hart has the story in Watchdog.org.

America’s most powerful union bosses are running a national smear campaign against 10 workers who fund their paychecks.

California teacher Rebecca Friedrichs and nine of her fellow educators are being vilified by executives of the country’s largest labor unions — including the National Education Association and American Federation of Teachers.

Using money taken from workers’ paychecks, union bosses are portraying Friedrichs and her peers as allies of evil corporations and white supremacists.
