Union Dues for Union Members!

 

Union Dues for Union Members!

We are public sector workers and union members, past and present, on a quest to demand transparency and accountability from our unions. Too many unions have become what they were formed to fight, and our mission is to refocus our elected leaders on the main purpose of a union: to work on behalf of its members. We see the waste every day, yet when we demand transparency on how our dues money is being spent, we become the victims.

  • We feel there is a crucial role for the Union and all of its Organization in holding the Government accountable for all the waste.
  • It is our Members that see the waste every day; it is our Members that can call it out to the Union Representatives in their area.
  • This can be taken forward by Union Management and reported back to the membership. We can’t sit idly by while our paychecks are cut, our jobs are cut, and money is going down the drain in waste and fraud.

Time for a new day. It starts with transparency. Please join our growing bi-partisan movement to take back our unions because at the end of the day, we, the members, are the union.

 

Repeated attempts by Union Transparency members to push labor representatives, officers and board members to disclose expenses voluntarily have been met with resistance. On October 15, 2014, a member of the SEIU Local 1000 filed a lawsuit demanding financial transparency.

 

Among the requests:

 

* an accounting of car allowances

* disclosure of housing allowances and mortgage payments

* an accounting of travel expenses: airfare, lodging and meals

* an accounting of clothing allowances

* the accounting books and records of credit card expense reports

* an accounting and records of salaries, wages, bonuses, per diem travel expenses and any other benefit paid to a state employee on union leave

 

DEMAND TRANSPARENCY NOW!
