The ‘Freedom’ Foundation is trying to get state employees’ personal contact information.

Why do they want to contact you about your Union membership? It’s simple.

We stand in the way. Our union protects public employees and the public good. As long as we’re strong they can’t get their hands on the billions of dollars invested each year in public services and public education.

They want to dismantle government, cut public services and outsource public jobs to the private sector. They are a front group for the ultra wealthy and funded by special interests.  Get the facts.



The Freedom Foundation is after us.

They want the personal information of all state employees. Why?

They’re after our pensions, healthcare and pay. They want to destroy our union.

But together, we win.


The ‘Freedom’ Foundation has an agenda.

Let’s talk about it.



The ‘Freedom’ Foundation has publicly opposed pay raises for state employees.
“It makes little sense to promote a pay raise for state employees who are satisfied enough with their jobs that 90% of them choose to remain employed by the state,” Amber Gunn, Freedom Foundation Blog.

The ‘Freedom’ Foundation wants to end public employee pensions.
“Everything should be on the table . . . states should consider replacing their defined-benefit plans with defined-contribution 401(k) plans,” Bob Williams, founder of the “Freedom” Foundation.

The ‘Freedom’ Foundation wants to eliminate public services and good jobs.

The ‘Freedom’ Foundation wants to increase our health care monthly premium rates.

The ‘Freedom’ Foundation is a front group for wealthy special interests.
They have a long track-record of disregard for state employees who they view as overpaid and underworked.

The ‘Freedom’ Foundation has no idea how committed we are to our work.
Public service is a calling that compels us to put the well-being of our communities first.

WE NEVER QUIT on the public good, our communities and our families.
