DOL Gift to Big Labor Bosses Challenged in Court

Tired of not seeing where his forced union dues go and disgusted with the the U.S. Department of Labor’s decision to help union bosses conceal their extravagant benefit packages, UFCW member Chris Mosquera has filed suit challenging the Secretary Solis’ rescission of union financial disclosure.  From the Gazette’s Erin Cunningham:

In the complaint, filed Monday in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, Chris Mosquera of Rockville seeks to have an action by Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis overturned.

At issue is her decision to repeal a rule that would have increased the amount of information unions had to disclose publicly about their finances, said Patrick Semmens, the director of legal information for the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation, which is representing Mosquera.

The nonprofit foundation opposes forced unionization and provides free legal aid for employees.
