Public Service Union Posts Names of Employees Who Opted Out of Union

AFSCME union officials posted the names of employees who opted out of the union at a Michigan hospital. EAG News reported:

A top labor official told MLive recently that the public posting of names of union members who opted out of the union serves as a membership renewal reminder to other union members.

Lawrence Roehrig, international vice president of AFSCME and secretary treasurer of Michigan AFSCME Council 25, made his comments in an MLive story that appeared after Michigan Capitol Confidential broke the news that AFSCME Hurley Medical Center Employees Local 1603 posted the names of workers who exercised their rights and left the union as part of the state’s right-to-work law.

“You’re not harassing them,” Roehrig was quoted by MLive as saying. “It gives you an indication of who’s paying and who isn’t.”

But two of the former union members who were on the list aren’t buying Roehrig’s explanation that it’s a legitimate way to remind workers about their membership status.

Kollin VanDenHeuvel said he had to sign paperwork saying it was his choice to leave the union and he had to turn it in to the Human Resources department. He said in an email the union knows that the people on the list didn’t forget but chose to opt out.

Strongarming, plain and simple. It’s the union way.

A good argument to carry. And I’m not talking mail.

Kind of a twist on “Join or Die,” eh?

If you have to coerce people to join your organization, then perhaps a bit of introspection is in order.

That why “union” and “thug” go together like “peanut butter” and “jelly.”

Sounds like a badge of honor to me. Possibly showing these folks are smart enough to know when they’re being played.

I'd take it as a badge of honor to be on the bailed-out list.

Perhaps someone should publish the name of Mr Roerig's wife and children and where the children go to school along with his address and phone no. Just for general information.

When union thugs harass them the politicians will deliberately refuse to prosecute the thugs.

(democrat party thrives on union contributions)

It could shape up to be an interesting race for the Dingell seat.

(Union member)Right-to-work champion to announce run for Dingell's seat

Bowman is the real deal and has the credibility to back it up. He's even openly testified against his own union (UAW) on capitol hill.

And while we're at it, you can see the address and phone number of AFSCME President Lee Saunders at this link: http://www.whitepages.com/name/Lee-A-Saunders/Washington-DC/ayixbmq.

BTW, here is the AFSCME link to Lee Saunders' bio. Note that the information in the last paragraph confirms the address at the above link.

Saunders and his wife Lynne live in Washington, DC, and have two sons, Lee, Jr. and Ryan.
