41,499 Virtual Candles Lit - Help Light More
Thank you for joining us in lighting a virtual candle for the tens of thousands of victims of union violence.

Union violence has been a scourge on American workers for decades.

Union thugs have vandalized equipment, torched buildings, and even murdered people, for the simple act of working non-union. Countless victims have lost their property, their health, their livelihoods, and even their lives to union violence.

According to the National Institute for Labor Relations Research (NILRR), there have been over 12,000 incidents of union violence reported by American media since 1975.

This figure is all the more appalling, given that studies show 80%-90% of violent union incidents that get reported to police are never reported in the media.

That means there have been more than 50,000 incidents of union violence over the past 40 years.

And that’s not even scratching the surface of incidents never reported to the police.

The union bosses that coordinate these crime virtually never face justice because of an outrageous loophole in the Hobbs anti-extortion law.

Congressman Paul Broun has introduced the Freedom from Union Violence Act to close that loophole. Please sign the petition below, urging your Congressman to support this bill, and urging Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte to hold hearings on the issue.

Freedom from Union Violence Act Petition to:
My Representative & Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte


Whereas:   Every year militant union bosses deploy their thugs to target innocent men and women with threats, brass knuckles, knives and beatings in an attempt to send a simple message -- do what we want, or pay the price; and
Whereas:   Because of the 1973 Enmons decision, union officials are exempt from federal prosecution -- as long as the campaign of violence they incite is in the name of "legitimate union objectives"; and
Whereas:   Union violence is a crippling blow not only for innocent American workers targeted by union militants -- but for every American citizen; and
Whereas:   Passage of the Freedom from Union Violence Act would close the loophole in federal law and finally allow authorities to prosecute union officials for inciting violence;
Therefore:  I urge you to help hold union officials accountable for union violence by supporting the Freedom from Union Violence Act (HR 2021).
By submitting the information below, you authorize the National Right to Work Committee to deliver your petition to the offices of your U.S. Congressman and Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte.
