NH workers take ‘right to work’ petition to Supreme Court

Democrats have long had a symbiotic relationship with labor unions as both gain power and influence from each other. Workers are forced to contribute to these unions and are the ones who lose out, but some New Hampshire employees are not about to take it.

Two state employees have sued to recoup dues they say were unlawfully confiscated by the union, the Washington Examiner reported. The National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation is suing the State Employees’ Association of New Hampshire on the employees’ behalf. 

A 2018 U.S. Supreme Court decision made confiscating the payments unlawful, overturning the so-called  “fair share” rule that imposed union fees on all public workers even if they didn’t want to join the union. The assertion was that unions bargained on behalf of all employees and required compensation regardless of their desire to join.

However, Patrick Doughty and Randy Severance were still forced to pay dues and have initiated a class-action lawsuit to obtain refunds for themselves and other employees who didn’t want to join but were forced to pay into it anyway. A lower court has rejected their petition, forcing them to bring it to the Supreme Court.

“Union bosses violated the rights of workers in New Hampshire and across the country for decades and now they must return a few years of those ill-gotten gains,” the foundation’s president Mark Mix said in a statement. “The Court should grant Doughty and Severance’s petition and make it clear that union bosses cannot simply pocket the proceeds of their unconstitutional forced dues scheme.”

Mix further noted that New Hampshire does not have a right-to-work law “that ensures union membership and financial support are voluntary, not coerced,” otherwise the lawsuit wouldn’t be necessary. “Had union dues been voluntary during the period covered in the lawsuit, union officials could not have seized forced fees from unwilling workers to begin with,” he said.

The New Hampshire State Legislature is mulling a right-to-work provision for private companies at this time. Republican Gov. Chris Sununu is expected to sign it as a pro-business measure if it passes.

If unions can confiscate money from all employees, their power becomes overwhelming and absolute. When they then funnel those funds to Democrats, workers are left with lighter paychecks as their money goes to support causes they don’t agree with.

    1. If I could give it a go before I pay for it, you might have me sold. Otherwise, no thank you.

  2. If we get rid of the strong hold Unions have on workers we definitely will have better country. Look at how the Teachers Union destroyed children’s education as one example of the unions being in bed with the Democratic platform. I hope and pray the Supreme Court abolishes this corrupt enterprise.

    1. TYhe departments created AFTER the original 4:
      State
      War
      Treasury
      Justice

      were all created to REWARD POLITICAL CRONIES THAT HELPED GET CORRUPT POLITICIANS ELECTED.

      Labor was CREATED to REWARD the unions WITH THE POWER OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OVER THE PRIVATE INDUSTRIES that were forced to go union!

    2. AMEN !!
      They once had a purpose to support the Workers. Now it’s all about stealing their hard earned money,
      Their union dues). They are no better than the thieving Politicians.
      Does anyone out there trust our federal government ???

  3. No longer a free nation just a two bit banana republic. With bottom feeding commie dictators. Fair share a phrase meaning I want your money to buy votes and mansions.

  4. Biden over committed to the unions to get their vote, they are holding his feet to the fire. With that being said and the billions of dollars unions stand to gain with Biden’s support they have found their new Jommy Hoffa. And I am serious.

  5. WE THE PEOPLE NEED TO DEMAND CONGRESS IMPEACH BIDEN AND HARRIS!

    WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

    Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?

    I urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

    BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! Biden is guilty of 18 U.S. Code CHAPTER 115—TREASON, SEDITION, AND SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES.

    HARRIS is guilty of violating 18US Code 2381 Treason, 18 US Code 2382 Misprision of Treason, 18US Code 2383 Rebellion or Insurrection, 18 US Code 2384 Seditious Conspiracy and 18 US CODE 2385 Advocating Overthrow of Government!

    Democrats want to legalize anarchy and ban law and order.

    Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!

  6. Unions are only good for those at the top go on strike see who gets paid most have to settle for maybe 10% 0f what they paid in. Unions are to rob their members.

  7. Workers should definitely NOT be required to pay union dues if they don’t want to join the union! When unions become political, the workers and their dues money are subject to the whims/choices of the union leaders with no choice as to how or to whom their money is being used in support of individuals or political parties the workers may not want to endorse/support! Chances are if the workers complained about how their money was being used for support of something they didn’t agree with or voiced opinions that weren’t in-line with the union leaders, they would more than likely be terminated or conditions made unbearable enough so the employee would quit. It’s a typical Democratic tactic to eliminate opposition and further their dictatorship agenda.

    1. I agree, we need to find a way for the Unions to ONLY give 200 dollars a election period ! They should all be held accountable and require a Vote by the Members as to whom the donate money to.

  8. I’ve made €6258 so far this week working online and I’m a full time student. I’m using an online business opportunity I heard about and I’ve made such great money. It’s really user friendly and I’m just so happy that I found out about it. Heres what I’ve been doing…

  9. Very easy to solve this problem. Have every union member send their dues in instead of payroll deduction. Problem solved

  10. I get paid over $87 per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I’d be able to do it but my best friend earns over 10k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless. Here’s what I’ve been doing…>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> http://snag4.com/
