Pittsburgh, PA (July 30, 2013) – The National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation has launched an information campaign focusing on Pittsburgh-area hospital workers.
The Foundation launched the television ad campaign after receiving reports that a Service Employees International Union (SEIU) is stepping up pressure on the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) to hand over its workers and allow them to be shoved into union ranks.
The ad campaign currently consists of a series of messages featuring healthcare professionals the Foundation has assisted in the past. The Foundation is the nation's premier organization exclusively dedicated to providing free legal assistance to employee victims of forced unionism abuse.
Mark Mix, President of the National Right to Work Foundation, issued the following statement regarding the TV ad campaign:
"The SEIU has been orchestrating a years-long 'corporate campaign' to compel UPMC management to stand down and allow union organizers to strong-arm the hospital's employees into their forced union ranks. Often in situations like this, workers are caught in the struggle between union organizers and the company and are left in the dark about their workplace rights.
"That is why the Foundation has launched this ad campaign: To let workers know that they have a place to turn to learn about their rights.
"Workers seeking to learn more about their workplace rights or free legal aid can call the Foundation at 1-800-336-3600 or visit www.nrtw.org."
