Sacramento, California – Friday morning, November 4, the U.S. District Court will consider converting a temporary restraining order into a preliminary injunction that would halt the use and further collection of a mandatory dues increase levied by California State Employees Association (CSEA) union officials against 37,000 union nonmembers.

What: Federal court hearing and media availability
When: 10:00 a.m. courtroom hearing
11:00 a.m. availability outside courthouse
Friday, November 4
Where: U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California
Judge Morrison C. England, Jr.
Courtroom 3, 15th Floor
501 I Street
Sacramento, CA
Who: California state employee plaintiffs
National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation spokesmen
Why: The hearing on a preliminary injunction arises from a civil rights complaint, filed by employees on Tuesday, seeking a ruling to require union officials to give members and nonmembers of the CSEA union their due process rights, including financial disclosure, a formal notice of the right to object, and rebates, plus interest, to all who request them. The court has already issued a temporary restraining order protecting the named plaintiffs only. The CSEA has already spent more than $22 million on the special election.
