South Carolina Boeing Employees Appeal Federal Machinist Union Discrimination Case

Union bosses abused process to force Boeing to locate production in union facility in non-Right to Work Washington State

Washington, DC (August 21, 2012) – Two Charleston, South Carolina, Boeing company (NYSE: BA) employees filed a federal appeal in their high-profile case against the International Association of Machinists (IAM) union.

The employees filed the appeal with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) in Washington, D.C., with free legal assistance from National Right to Work Foundation staff attorneys.

The NLRB regional office in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, dismissed the workers' federal charges in late July.

The workers were denied participation in the hearing that concluded the case even though they were granted intervenor status by the NLRB in Washington, D.C. The workers then filed a federal charge against the IAM and its Local 751 union alleging that union officials had abused the NLRB's adjudicative process by bullying Boeing into contract concessions and guaranteeing production of the company's 737 Max and future airplane production in Washington State, which does not have a Right to Work law.

Union bosses continually keep workers in dark about expenditures

Seattle, WA (July 26, 2012) – With free legal assistance from National Right to Work Foundation staff attorneys, a Sandy, Oregon, bus driver's case before the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has taken yet another dramatic turn.

On Monday, a NLRB Regional Director revoked a federal settlement reached between the agency and Teamsters Local 206 union officials after union officials made a mockery of federal labor law and repeatedly violated the settlement.

The legal challenge is part of an ongoing legal controversy involving the union and First Student bus driver Richard Harmon, who resigned from formal union membership in Teamsters Local 206 in January 2011.

Employee from Non-Profit Public Defense Firm Defends Her Rights from SEIU Union Hierarchy

Seattle-area case highlights need for state Right to Work law

Seattle, WA (March 20, 2012) – An employee at a private, non-profit public defense law firm has filed federal unfair labor practice charges against a Seattle-area union for violating her rights.

With free legal assistance from National Right to Work Foundation attorneys, Society of Counsel Representing Accused Persons employee Stephanie Kalfayan filed the charges Friday with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) regional office in Seattle.

Kalfayan resigned from formal union membership in Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Local 925 and invoked her right to refrain from paying full union dues. However, because SEIU Local 925 officials enjoy monopoly bargaining privileges over her workplace, and because Washington does not have state Right to Work protections for its workers, Kalfayan is forced to accept SEIU officials' "representation" and pay union fees as a condition of employment.
