    Default Teamsters to File Lawsuit Against WV Senate Over Secret Emails

    (CHARLESTON, W.Va.) – The Teamsters Union will file a lawsuit this week against the West Virginia State Senate accusing Senate leaders of concealing email communications with a professor at West Virginia University (WVU) concerning right-to-work (RTW) legislation.

    The Teamsters are concerned that legislative supporters of the pending right-to-work legislation used state money to fund a study that was intended to provide cover for their anti-worker objectives, rather than independently considering the impact on the West Virginia economy or the welfare of the average citizen.

    Senate leaders who advocated for the passage of right to work have failed to provide the correspondence, despite numerous requests by the Teamsters Union since November for the release of this public information.

    The lawsuit alleges Senate leadership violated the Freedom of Information Act in failing to release the content of the redacted emails between Senate Committee personnel and Prof. John Deskins.

    Judge Sides with Teamsters in Fight to Review WVU Right-to-Work Emails
    (CHARLESTON, W.Va.) – The Teamsters Union today is lauding a court ruling that will require West Virginia University (WVU) to make available seven previously redacted emails about a report detailing the economic impact of so-called right to work (RTW). The West Virginia Legislature approved RTW legislation last month.

    In a bench ruling issued this morning by Seventeenth Judicial Circuit Judge Phillip Gaujot, the court determined the Teamsters were entitled to the contents of the emails as part of a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request the union previously filed. In addition, the judge said WVU must compile a listing of documents it withheld that could fall under the FOIA request for him to review and decide whether to turn over to the Teamsters if sought.
