Another bill opposed by unions introduced as House gears up for debate on paycheck measure

What it says rockchalk1977 is that government employees who are members of bargaining units value our freedoms. We can stand up to the brutal oppression of the Billionaire Boys Club because we have the freedom of the ballot box to protect our rights, unlike the poor stiffs in the private sector.

Letter: Union attack

The members of my bargaining unit VOTE to endorse candidates or support certain legislation. This bill violates our individual rights to freedom of speech and association. We have the absolute RIGHT to endorse a candidate of our choice. If you take away our freedom of choice, you have created a fascist state.

Another bill opposed by unions introduced as House gears up for debate on paycheck measure

I was appalled when I read the substance of HB2123, the so-called “Public Employees Freedom Act”. This bill almost re-enacts slavery in the government workplace.

If we can be arrested if we protest, that is not freedom. If we cannot sign our name on a document because it deals with collective bargaining, that is not freedom. I suggest that the provisions in this bill actually violate my constitutional rights to freedom of speech and freedom of association.

This would be another black eye for Kansas and subject us to even further ridicule than we already receive. A bronx cheer to the Tea Party ding-dongs who came up with this one.
