Stop anti-union legislation

There’s Trouble in Texas

The fight is on for teachers and other public workers. Normally, employers adjust employee payrolls for savings plans, charitable donations, union dues, and other deductions. SB7 and HB156 in the legislature’s special session would leave the other deductions, but omit union dues. The reason is clear: to destroy Texas unions! Click here to join the statewide fightback.
