Worker Advocate Asks Federal Labor Board to Uphold Precedent Disallowing Forced Unionization of Professors

Foundation files brief supporting university professors' freedom of speech

Washington, DC (July 11, 2012) – The National Right to Work Foundation filed an amicus curiae ('friend of the court") brief with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) asking the Board to uphold the U.S. Supreme Court's long-standing precedent that disallows union officials from corralling most university professors into unwanted union affiliation.

Foundation staff attorneys filed the brief with the NLRB in a case involving Newspaper Guild of Pittsburgh/Communications Workers of America (CWA) Local 38061 union organizers' attempt to unionize professors at Point Park University in Pittsburgh and ultimately force the professors to pay union dues.
