Springfield, Va. (October 14, 2003) – The National Right to Work Foundation has selected Boston radio talk show host Chuck Morse to receive this year’s Right to Work Communication Fellowship Award at an event honoring retired Senator Jesse Helms (R-NC) and other leaders in the Right to Work movement.
The award is given annually to an individual journalist who has done a great deal to communicate to the public about the struggle against union tyranny and abuse encountered by America’s working men and women.
Currently 11 million employees across America are forced to join a union in order to get or keep a job. Big Labor’s government-granted special privileges result in many abuses of individual employee rights, including union violence and violations of political or religious freedom guaranteed by the First Amendment.
Morse, who has hosted the Chuck Morse Show (aired weekdays on Boston’s WROL-AM) since 1996 will be honored in conjunction with a meeting of National Right to Work’s board of directors in Raleigh, North Carolina, on October 25, 2003.
“Chuck Morse is a true leader in the fight for individual liberty,” said Mark Mix, President of the National Right to Work Foundation. “Over the past year, Chuck has done an outstanding job in advocating for the rights of workers who face union coercion, and he has helped to shine a bright light on the wide variety of union abuses which have become so prevalent in Massachusetts as in other parts of the country.”
In addition to his work on the radio, Morse owns and manages City Metro Enterprises, an advertising distribution service that he established in 1986. Morse is a regular columnist for World Net Daily and has published four compilations of his columns, Thunder out of Boston, Why I’m a Right-Wing Extremist, The Difference between Us and Them, and The Gramsci Factor.
Morse lives in Brookline, Massachusetts, with his wife Barbara Morse and their four-year-old daughter.
The National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation is a nonprofit, charitable organization providing free legal aid to employees whose human or civil rights have been violated by compulsory unionism abuses. The Foundation, which can be contacted toll-free at 1-800-336-3600, assists thousands of employees in more than 250 cases nationwide per year.
