CHARLESTON, W.Va. − A lawsuit was filed amongst many labor unions to block HB 2009 that discriminately prohibits paycheck deductions for public employees and their unions went before the WV Supreme Court on October 26.
“It’s about a punitive measure against teachers unions,” Lee said on “Talkline.” He added, “When you have supported other candidates in the Legislature, elections have consequences.”
“Anticipating the possibility that the law could take effect, unions have been directing members toward other ways of regularly collecting dues. Those options include setting up regular payments through credit cards or bank accounts. You never know how the court’s going to rule, so you prepare for any scenario,” Lee said.
