Saks Worker Cries Foul on Union

New York City, The National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation reported that a Saks Fifth Avenue employee filed federal charges today against the Retail Wholesale Department Store Union Local 1102 for illegally threatening to get 150 employees fired if they assert their right to refrain from formal union membership and refuse the automatic deduction of full union dues from their paychecks.

Foundation attorneys cite that union officials never informed the employee, Robert Jones, a cosmetics retail sales associate in Saks’ flagship store in Manhattan, or any other similarly situated employee, of his right to refrain from formal union membership and not be forced to pay for union politics and other non-bargaining activities.
