FAQs – What is the Freedom from Union Violence Act (FUVA)?


The Freedom from Union Violence Act simply eliminates Big Labor’s special exemption from Hobbs Act anti-extortion laws.

Passage of the Freedom from Union Violence Act would address the widespread and continuing problem of union violence, which is actually encouraged by deficient federal law.

This legislation would close a judicially created loophole in the federal Hobbs Anti-Extortion Act that exempts from prosecution union-related violence and extortion used to obtain “legitimate union objectives.”  

Union officers should be held to the same legal standards as other Americans.
