- If a politician can handpick favorite union bosses to be the political representative of 40,000 workers (all forced to pay union dues), then any group that receives any public money can be swept into forced unionism.
- Millions of dollars in forced union dues are at stake –- money that union bosses will use to buy more political influence and gain still more special privileges.
- Union bosses are already spreading this scheme nationwide. Foundation attorneys are poised to launch lawsuits in many other states where politicians are eager to hand their Big Labor patrons millions in forced-dues windfalls.
Foundation attorneys have crafted the legal strategy to achieve maximum effectiveness by filing a class action lawsuit on behalf of all 40,000 workers affected by the Michigan scheme. Class action lawsuits are highly effective because they can return millions of dollars in refunds to workers in one lawsuit.
And because Foundation attorneys are challenging the Michigan scheme as a violation of the U.S. Constitution, a victory will serve as a precedent in other states as well.
Most importantly, victory could derail similar schemes lurking in ObamaCare. With so much at stake for the union bosses, I suspect this case will go to the U.S. Supreme Court.
That’s why I urgently need your help today. I need to know you stand ready to support the Foundation’s entire legal aid program as we carry on these strategic, important lawsuits in Michigan, Illinois, and other states.
And, because there is so much at stake here and in the new ObamaCare law, I hope you will also chip in with a generous, tax-deductible contribution of $50.
I know that $50 is a lot to ask of you, but the principles at stake in these lawsuits are so important that I hope you will be as generous as you can.
Even a lesser contribution of $25 or $10 will help us fund these lawsuits while keeping our entire strategic legal program moving forward.
The important thing is that you act today by making a generous, tax-deductible contribution.
I’m waiting to hear from you.
P.S. Forced unionism provisions buried in the ObamaCare law could hand the union bosses millions of new forced-dues dollars. Foundation attorneys have filed lawsuits to rip apart similar schemes at the state level, and they could establish a key precedent. This issue may ultimately be decided by the U.S. Supreme Court.
