Letter of Support for the Employee Rights Act, H.R. 3485

As one of our millions of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to contact your Representative today and urge him or her to support H.R. 3485, the “Employee Rights Act.” Introduced by Congressman Tom Price (R-GA), this bill would enable American workers to freely exercise their rights in the workplace by maintaining the right to a secret ballot, allowing workers to see their paychecks used as they intend, and making union membership the free choice of an individual employee rather than a mandate.

Steve King (IA-4), this legislation would allow workers the freedom to choose whether they wish to join a union, and would disallow the practice of compulsory union dues.

Unions deemed exempt from Identity Theft laws

As one of 22 Right to Work states in America, North Carolina workers are not required to belong to a union in order to keep their jobs. When 33 workers at AT&T exercised this right and resigned their membership in the Communication Workers of America Union in 2007, they were subjected to workplace harassment. The harassment then got worse as these workers had their private information made public.
