Minnesota Union Settles Suit Over Withdrawal Window

WFB: A Minnesota police clerk has won the right to cut ties from the union that attempted to continue deducting money from her paycheck even after the Supreme Court dubbed such payments unconstitutional.

The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 31 agreed to settle a suit with Brainerd Police Department Clerk Sandra Anderson after the 15-year veteran sued to obtain her resignation. In June, the Supreme Court ruled in Janus v. AFSCME that public sector agencies could no longer mandate union membership or agency fee payments as a condition of employment. Within days of the ruling Anderson attempted to cease paycheck deductions, but the union insisted she was required to make the payments until January 2019 when her contract expired.  read more

  2. Spent many years in Unions;some
    closed shop some not. They always
    kept the useless jerks safe but
    sometimes (rarely) they saved some decent guy from being crapped on by
    management. They were Always after
    our money and supported socialism.
    Overall, they were a waste of money.

  3. What has the IBEW to do with “Clerking?”
    Did she have to change light bulbs after lunch?

  4. My dad worked in an O.C.A.W. (Oil, Chemical & Atomic Workers) plant for forty-one years. He and his co-workers got sick of the way OCAW treated it’s members, so they voted to dump OCAW and form their own union. They called it the T.C.U (Technical Control Union). Things were much better after that.
