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
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
Union violence is a crippling blow not only for innocent American workers targeted by union militants -- but for every American citizen; and
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;
I urge you to help hold union officials accountable for union violence by supporting the Freedom from Union Violence Act (HR 2021).
