Former AFT President Supports Right to Work
August 21, 2017|Uncategorized
Former AFT President Ben Johnson visited with CEAFU and Foundation staff and had some pretty surprising things to say about forced unionism. Connor D. Wolf reports in the Daily Caller Online.
Labor unions oppose few policies more than they do right-to-work laws. But one former state union president Friday endorsed the policy as a critical workplace right.
Ben Johnson has served as a union president for both the Vermont AFL-CIO and the state chapter of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT). But upon leaving the unions, he began to reconsider his views on labor matters. His chance to reflect brought him to favor a policy that is paramount to sin in union circles.
