LAS VEGAS, Nev. (December 3, 2001) — To balance against the monolithic public relations message of union officials at the AFL-CIO’s 24th biennial convention at Paris/Bally’s hotel, a spokesman for a national legal aid organization that is helping thousands of employee victims of union coercion and violence will be available for media interviews.

National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation Vice President Stefan Gleason, who appears frequently on national television and radio programs, and whose writings have appeared in the Wall Street Journal, Investor’s Business Daily, Washington Times, and numerous other publications, is prepared to respond to the claims made by union officials during this year’s AFL-CIO convention. He can authoritatively comment on, for example:

  • how the AFL-CIO is out of step with rank and file workers;
  • how Big Labor raises and spends resources used for its aggressive political activities;
  • how the AFL-CIO is increasingly reliant on explicit government grants of power to swell union ranks where efforts at persuading workers to join unions voluntarily have failed;
  • how union officials have succeeded in unionizing record numbers of government employees;
  • why union bosses fight so hard to defeat Right to Work laws, which protect employees’ right to refrain from union membership.

To contact Gleason during the December 3-6 AFL-CIO convention, please call the National Right to Work Foundation at 1-800-336-3600 or Gleason’s cell phone at 703-856-7399.

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.
