July/August 1999 Issue

Dear Foundation Supporter:

      Iıd like to share with you a little more about the Foundationıs legal aid strategy and how the scarce resources generously provided by Foundation supporters are applied.

      The Foundationıs legal aid program is designed to fulfill two objectives: (1) to enforce employeesı existing legal rights against forced unionism abuses, and (2) to win new legal precedents expanding these rights and protections.

      The Foundationıs caseload is growing every day with new complaints of coercion, violence, extortion, and denial of individual rights by union officials. In order to use its limited resources in the most effective way, the Foundationıs legal staff evaluates every request for help according to the following criteria:

  • The severity of the injustices suffered by the employee;
  • The factual strength of the employeeıs situation as a basis for legal action;
  • The possibility of establishing new legal precedents that would benefit other employees;
  • The probable cost in view of the available resources of the Foundation.

      Itıs only with the dedicated support of the Foundationıs friends that our nationally recognized legal aid program has made such progress in ameliorating the abuses of compulsory unionism.

      As we face the increasingly militant designs of Big Labor in the upcoming year, the Foundationıs supporters should feel confident that their contributions are carefully marshaled to have the greatest impact.

Rex H. Reed
