Leading Union Watchdogs Available for Interviews On and Around Labor Day 2007

**Springfield, VA (August 31, 2007)** – Experts from the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation and National Right to Work Committee will be available for comment and interviews on and around Labor Day September 3 about workers’ rights, union political activities, union organizing trends and tactics, union corruption, and other issues relating to organized labor in America.

The Foundation is a non-profit, charitable organization that provides free legal aid to victims of compulsory unionism abuse. The National Right to Work Committee is 2.2 million member grassroots citizens’ organization that is dedicated to the principle that no one should ever be forced to affiliate with a union in order to get or keep a job.

National Right to Work spokesmen are frequently interviewed on national television and radio programs, including The O’Reilly Factor, Special Report with Brit Hume, CNBC’s Closing Bell, and on CNN. Their writings frequently appear in The Wall Street Journal, the Washington Times, Investor’s Business Daily, and scores of others. They are prepared to comment on or debate any issues related to the following:

• Union officials’ political efforts to pass legislation expanding union special privileges at the expense of rank-and-file employees;

• The growing support around the country for job-producing Right to Work laws that make union membership and dues payment strictly voluntary;

• How the Bush-appointed National Labor Relations Board has failed to rule on many of the most cutting-edge cases in American labor law – allowing union officials to step up their aggressive organizing tactics;

• The efforts of Big Labor’s allies in Congress to overturn state labor laws and give union officials monopoly bargaining power over firefighters and police officers;

• Organized labor’s war on the secret ballot election process for workers choosing whether to unionize; increasing use of coercive “card check” organizing campaigns against workers; and “corporate campaigns” to bully nonunion companies to unionize or go out of business;

• How the Foundation is helping workers battle back in the courts against forced union dues, union violations of religious freedom, union violence, and other infringements of employees’ individual rights;

• How teacher union officials have contributed to a decline in public education while blocking efforts at reform.
