Springfield, VA (August 31, 2005) – Spokesmen from the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation will be available for comment and interviews on and around Labor Day about the recent AFL-CIO dispute, politics, workers’ rights, union organizing, and other issues relating to organized labor. The Foundation is a non-profit, charitable organization that provides free legal aid to victims of compulsory unionism abuse Foundation spokesmen have been interviewed frequently on national television and radio programs, including The O’Reilly Factor, Special Report with Brit Hume, CNBC’s Closing Bell, and CNN. Their writings frequently appear in the Wall Street Journal, Washington Times, Investor’s Business Daily, and numerous other publications. They are prepared to comment on or debate any issues related to the following:

  • How the recent dispute among Big Labor officials during and after the recent AFL-CIO convention may signal an ominous new threat to employees’ freedom of association;
  • Big Labor’s war on the secret ballot election process for choosing whether to unionize, increasing use of coercive “card check” organizing campaigns against workers, and “corporate campaigns” against nonunion companies;
  • How Big Labor’s political agenda is out of step with many rank-and-file workers’ views;
  • How union officials seeking to unionize private airport security screeners may undermine national security while reversing Bush administration policy;
  • The growing support for job-producing Right to Work laws that make union membership strictly voluntary;
  • Examples of abuse resulting from forced union membership, union violence, violations of religious freedom, and other violations of employee individual rights;
  • How teacher union officials have contributed to a decline in public education quality while blocking efforts at reform.
