A California attorney is urging union works to join a national
campaign allowing them to divert their union dues to the
charity of their choice.
ChooseCharity gives union workers the ability to opt
out of union dues, transferring them instead to charity. Brad Dacus
of the Pacific Justice Institute (PJI) explains that
unions are required to provide such an option for workers who can
prove that supporting their union requires them to violate their
religious or moral beliefs.
"Many unions, both in the public sector and the private sector,
are giving their union dues to support issues, causes, and
candidates that [are] keeping abortions occurring at such a massive
scale in this country and furthering the homosexual rights agenda,"
But to avoid further supporting those efforts, workers can visit
ChooseCharity.org and submit an application
free of charge. ChooseCharity's staff will take care of the rest,
"We think that this is going to be a major game-changer in that
we're going to see … not just millions, but potentially hundreds of
millions of dollars shifting out of unions that violate the
principles and beliefs of Christians," the PJI attorney
Dacus adds that non-profits can help by including a link on
their websites to direct visitors to ChooseCharity, which was
launched by PJI attorneys.
