Washington State: Union Threats and Investigations

The influence of big labor on the legislature in Washington state is threatening jobs as companies like Boeing consider leaving to Right to Work states.  It’s not hard to see why.

Big union threats and intimidation are politics as usual in the Evergreen State but this time a union boss may have gone too far.

Demanding action on a “privacy bill,” that gags employers from discussing forced unionism at  meetings, a union boss linked campaign contributions to actions on the bill setting off a criminal  investigation into the matter.  Of course, that’s a real yawner as union PAC and treasurers link contributions to legislative actions all the time.  But in this instance they were brazen enough to put it in writing.
