Alaska AFL-CIO likes to think they are above the law. Good Ole Boy Vince Beltrami knows if Alaskans start standing up for their freedoms to choose to be in a Union or Not. The choice to no longer allow themselves to be dictated to and threatened, stop being lied to that if they don’t join, they won’t get the same pay, benefits or possibly, no job at all. (These Are All Lies) But that is exactly what they are saying on all the MSM outlets and from the Union Boss Vince Beltrami to be true.
The Janus Rule that AG Clarkson and Governor Mike Dunleavy want changed will only affect Government Workers. Instead of automatically being Opted in. They will need to actually fill out the paperwork and send it to the Union if they want to join and all their dues are to be sent separately from them and not directly pulled from their paychecks and paid to the Unions from our Government like they are now.
So what is the big deal here? The Unions will still be able to have their Unions. What they are fighting for is keeping People from finally being able to have choice, if they want to be in one or not, if they work for the Government.
Just so Alaskans get a really clear picture here.
60,000 People are in Unions here in Alaska.
22,000 of them work for the State.
$500.00 a year per person paid to the Unions, (Minimum Average).
$30,000,000 Million Dollars a year from Alaskans the Union Thugs get.
Hmmmm….. I think they are just a little worried the won’t have the financial clout to push the Socialist Agenda, using Alaskans Money, to fund their Special Interests lobbyist in Juneau and keep their near 7 Figure Salaries well funded if everything works out. There Financial Platform to Preach from, will shrivel up like the Clinton Foundation did, after the 2016 Election was over.
Now in all honesty they could lose anywhere from 1% – 33% of their members. Nobody really knows. If only those Union Members, All 60,000 here in Alaska knew they can’t lose their jobs by opting out.
Why does Alaska AFL-CIO think it right to step on peoples rights to be able to choose? What are they really afraid will happen to them when this happens? What are they Afraid of?
No surprised that they are suing the state to change the Janus Rule. The left never likes to follow the laws, anything that gives you the freedom to choose and not be dictated to. This is why there was nothing done when it was passed under Walkers term. Walker was just another Far Left Stooge on their payroll.
Just for you Governor Mike Dunleavy. Here is a link to Case Law to be used to Win the Lawsuit about paying Union Dues, here in Alaska, it backs up everything you are trying to do:
