Springfield, VA (July 25, 2011) – The National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation announced today that Geoffrey MacLeay, formerly of Longwood, Florida, has joined its legal staff.
MacLeay is a member of the Florida state bar and a 2007 graduate of the Emory University School of Law.
“Geoffrey MacLeay brings a real commitment to defending employee rights against the ongoing threat of compulsory unionism,” said Ray LaJeunesse, vice president and legal director of the National Right to Work Foundation.
“Geoff is already helping to further develop the Foundation’s litigation program to counter organized labor’s well-funded attack on individual worker rights – from its coercive ‘card check’ organizing campaigns to the misuse of employees’ compulsory dues for politics.”
As the newest addition to the Right to Work legal team, MacLeay will help build on the Foundation’s record of litigation against compulsory unionism, which includes several precedent-setting cases decided by the United States Supreme Court. National Right to Work Foundation staff attorneys currently represent thousands of employees in nearly 200 active cases nationwide.
Before joining the Foundation, MacLeay worked for a public relations firm in Alexandria, Virginia, where he dealt with union issues, among others. Prior to that, he worked at the Center for Freedom and Prosperity, also in Alexandria.
After graduating from law school, MacLeay practiced law with a firm in Winter Park, Florida. He received a bachelor’s degree in history and political science from Tulane University in 2004.
The National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation is a nonprofit, charitable organization providing free legal aid to employees whose human or civil rights have been violated by compulsory unionism abuses. The Foundation, which can be contacted toll-free at 1-800-336-3600, assists thousands of employees in more than 250 cases nationwide per year.
