Local Union Faces Prosecution after Union Official Threatens School Bus Driver with Physical Violence

Union official said if he found worker alone, he would "stomp" him

Gresham, OR (September 5, 2013) – A local union is facing a federal prosecution after a union official from the union threatened a First Student, Inc. bus driver with physical violence.

The prosecution comes after the bus driver filed an unfair labor practice charge with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) with free legal assistance from National Right to Work Foundation staff attorneys.

The driver filed the charge after an Oregon School Employees Association, American Federation of Teachers (AFT) Local 6732 union official tore down informational notices posted by the driver and threatened to "stomp" him if he ever found him alone. The notices included information on how the workers can, with a majority vote, remove the union hierarchy's ability to collect forced union dues and fees from nonmember drivers.
