Another Osceola Hospital Employee Comes Forward, Hits SEIU with Federal Charge

From the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation:

Union officials ignore workers’ repeated requests to resign

Kissimmee, FL (April 19, 2012) – An Osceola Regional Medical Center employee has joined two of her colleagues and filed a federal charge against a major healthcare union for repeatedly violating federal law by refusing to allow her and her coworkers to exercise their right to refrain from dues-paying union membership under Florida’s popular Right to Work law.

With free legal assistance from the National Right to Work Foundation, Laura McDuffie of St. Cloud filed the charge with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).

In December 2011, McDuffie sent a letter notifying Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Healthcare Workers East officials that she was exercising her right to resign from union membership. Instead of acknowledging her request, SEIU officials rejected her letter because it was not “timely.” Moreover, the union continues to confiscate union dues from McDuffie’s paycheck.
