Supporting paycheck protection

04/23/2014 01:35PM, Published by ACL, Categories: Opinion, In Print



Letter to the Editor:

Pennsylvania needs paycheck protection laws. It's not fair that public sector unions have a special privilege. It is not the responsibility of government entities to collect union dues. Furthermore, I do not want my tax dollars being used to collect union dues—and that includes using tax dollars to collect union dues in our school districts. Should taxpayers be the union's accounting firm and collection service? No!  Unions need to do the collecting of dues themselves—directly from their members. It's time to end the special privilege afforded to public sector unions at all levels.
