Unions are Under Attack: Will You Stand With Us?


By Bryce Smedley, CWA 4730 President

The very concept of labor unions is under attack! Why would anyone be against a group of workers stand-ing together? The simple answer: money! When people are allowed to organize and fight for fairness in the workplace, employers are forced to pay their fair share. In Indiana, and the country, unions are under assault by businesses and their political partners who exist off big campaign contributions. The public is fed lies and distortions about the purpose of unions and the princi-ples for which they stand. An excellent example from this year was the legislation (and intentional misno-mer), ?Right to Work,? which truly translates to ?Right to work for less.? The truth: in states that have busted collective bargaining rights, workers earn less money. Companies are not willing to pay more unless they are forced to by their workers.
