Recent Cases

Exposing Outrageous Union Contracts

Teachers are paid to teach. But some unions take teachers from the classroom to do full-time union work. Many of these “ghost teachers”—who remain on district payroll—have worked full-time for the union for decades. 

Freeing Employees

David Smith, homebound with muscular dystrophy, has relied on Don Lambrecht as his homecare worker for 25 years. An executive order from Gov. Wolf would let unions collect $8 million annually in dues from homecare workers by forcing representation on people like Don.
