We are very familiar with the attacks on unions including the recent vote on official time. However, a picture or video is worth a thousand words. Please take a moment to watch this video of the move to take away dues withholding as an attack on the union.
Here is the tape of a key Louisiana Association of Business and Industry lobbyist that I mentioned at the EA’s meeting last week. He makes clear that prohibition of payroll deduction will “grab the aorta” of unions by cutting off their funding. The tape went viral, made the press, and exposed what the battle was really all about, destroying unions, NOT protecting the taxpayer from paying for payroll deduction of public employee union dues as was stated in an Americans for Prosperity mailing across the state.
