    Default Union members rally against state bill

    About 30 union members? Come on Pennsylvania, you can do better than that.

    SCRANTON — About 30 union members and leaders and state Rep. Eddie Day Pashinski, D-Wilkes-Barre, rallied under the statue of union hero John Mitchell on the Lackawanna County Courthouse Square to protest Senate Bill 166, called the Protection of Public Employee Wages Act.

    The bill would ban the state from automatically deducting union dues, which the bill refers to as “political contributions,” from state employees’ paychecks. It would not invalidate existing collective bargaining agreements that agree to that but would prevent future contracts from doing so.

    The legislation has the effect of crushing union participation and weakening the workforce, organizers said.

    “This is strictly union-busting,” Pashinski said after the rally. “That’s what it is.”

    Lawmakers seek to bring right-to-work policies to state

    NOTICE: Republican led as usual.

    “This package of bills addressing compulsory payment of union dues are not anti-union – they are pro-worker and pro-jobs,” said state Rep. Garth Everett, R-Muncy, who is sponsoring the Freedom of Employment Amendment.

    This bill would make it Constitutionally unlawful in Pennsylvania for employment to be based on union membership or paying dues to unions, according to Everett.

    The seven bills were introduced as part of the Pennsylvania Open Workforce Initiative in the House of Representatives on Wednesday, and they focus on eliminating mandatory dues to unions.

    State Rep. Daryl Metcalfe, R-Cranberry Township, is spearheading the initiative with his bill, the Freedom of Employment Act.
