- Protect taxpayers from the inappropriate collection of union dues for state employees.
Prioritizing individual preferences by ensuring contributions and union membership are voluntary in the private and public sectors is important because it could affect all Texans. Policies on organized labor should emphasize transparency and protect an individual’s choice regarding union involvement. No person should be forced to join a union as a condition of employment or devote part of their paycheck toward political causes with which they disagree.
“Our state has no business collecting membership dues of a private, political organization. They should collect their own dues, as other membership organizations do.”
