SCOTUS Rules for Workplace Freedom, While Preserving Union Power

For the past year, the Supreme Court has been mulling the case of Harris v. Quinn, in which the state of Illinois was asserting its authority to collect union dues from non-union members working as home health care workers under a Medicare program. The state’s argument was that, since public sector labor unions negotiate contracts that benefit non-union members in terms of higher wages and better working conditions, it would be acceptable to expect these workers to pay union dues in return.

The Death Knell of Tenure

One of the greatest barriers to education reform, and the symbol of public sector intransigence, is teacher tenure. These statutes make it nearly impossible and incredibly expensive to fire poorly performing teachers. But in a landmark victory for education reform, a California judge ruled that teacher tenure and a slew of other job protection clauses are unconstitutional and should not be enforced by school districts.

Why I Submitted a Comment Objecting to the IRS Proposed Rule Targeting 501(c)(4) Groups

The Internal Revenue Service is attempting to change the standards for tax exempt status for 501(c)(4) groups. Rather than sticking to enforcing the will of Congress, the IRS, with the full blessing of the political operation in the White House, wants to ensure they won't have to harass conservative and tea party groups about their tax exempt status applications, because those groups won't even bother to apply. They need to hear from America.

Oregon Supreme Court Helps SEIU Oppose Right To Work

Earlier this year, a ballot initiative was filed in Oregon to place a measure on the 2014 ballot to allow public sector union members to opt out of mandatory deduction of dues from their paychecks.

California Exchange Grants $37 Million To Sell Obamacare

Covered California, the state's Obamacare health insurance exchange, announced on May 14 that it had awarded $37 million to promote the implementation of the health insurance law.  Unsurprisingly, many of the groups selected to receive grants have a similar political bent -- or vested financial interest in selling health care services.

Chicago Organizers and the Reelection Machine

Chicago Teachers Union got the strike desired by a core group of activists, but the strike is not about the issues on the table. The strike is about who is in charge: union bosses, or the taxpayers.

Chicago Teachers Want More Than There Is

The Chicago Teachers Union went on strike Sunday night, citing such issues as compensation, health benefits, and job security. Chicago is out of money, the State of Illinois is even more out of money, and in tough economic times, no one has job security.

Stopping ObamaCare and Big Labor in Ohio

On November 8th, Ohio voters will decide on two critical ballot initiatives, Issues 2 & 3, that have national implications for the Tea Party movement. If both measures pass it will be a huge victory in our efforts to stop ObamaCare and the corrupt influence of Big Labor.

FreedomWorks Fighting for Issues 2 & 3 in Ohio

Pledge to Vote YES on Issues 2 & 3 FreedomWorks and our local tea party allies in Ohio are teaming up to support Governor Kasich's union reform agenda and stop ObamaCare in its tracks this November by urging our members to vote YES on Ballot Issues 2 & 3. When SB 5 was passed last spring, it helped balance Ohio's budget by giving local governments desperately-needed flexibility to renegotiate certain aspects of public sector union contracts. It also introduced a system of merit pay for public employees, while asking them to contribute a small percentage of their income to their own benefit and pension plans.

NJ Legislature Passes Major Pension and Benefit Reform

On Thursday evening, the New Jersey assembly passed a landmark bi-partisan overhaul of the public employee benefit and pension system.  The bill passed the assembly by a 46-32 vote with 14 Democrats voted with Republicans for the bill. Now all that is needed is a signature from Governor Christie who has already touted the success of the bill’s passage.
