Oh you spammers! Do you really know who I am?!

I received an email asking me to give money to an advocacy group who wants to take an case to the Supreme Court: “You see, the Bierman v. Dayton case would lay the foundation to end one of Big Labor’s biggest and most coercive government-granted powers, so-called “collective bargaining.”

Sorry, National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation, I am not going to contribute to your mission to make unions illegal.

Background: About five years ago, Minnesota passed a law that said home-care providers could form a public service union. SEIU (Service Employees International Union) was lawfully selected as the union to represent employees who work in that industry. The election of SEIU was challenged because plaintiffs argued that it forced them into an association that they did not want and their constitutional rights were violated. A district court found against them as the plaintiffs were not forced to pay dues to the bargaining agent (Janus rears its ugly head) and were free to form their own advocacy groups if they wished. The 8th District Court of Appeals upheld the District Court’s decision.

That is the case the spammer named above (NRWLDF) wants to move to the United States Supreme Court.

What is shocking is the scope of the decision they hope to achieve: to end the collective bargaining rights of all unions.

If that happens, unions effectively cease to exist.

 

Full text of the email message:
Mark just gave me a quick call to provide an update on a groundbreaking new Supreme Court case that’s in the works.
And it’s not good.
So he asked me to fill you in right away, Greg.
You see, the Bierman v. Dayton case would lay the foundation to end one of Big Labor’s biggest and most coercive government-granted powers, so-called “collective bargaining.”
Collective bargaining, more accurately described as monopoly bargaining, corrals folks against their will into Big Labor’s ranks.
Not only does it strip workers of their freedom of association by forcing individuals opposed to unionization under union bosses’ so-called “representation”…
… it forces workers into contracts dictated and controlled by Big Labor bosses.
We know from past experiences and victories that legal costs can skyrocket amidst a heated battle at the Supreme Court.
So to be ready to file this writ of certiorari petition and take the Bierman v. Dayton case all the way to the Supreme Court, your National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation has set a goal of raising at least $120,000 by December 13th.
You see, a positive ruling in the Bierman case would free thousands of families from feeding Big Labor parasites — sucking in people as pawns to push their agenda.
I hope you will dig deep for your most generous tax-deductible contribution right away.
