Charlotte Workers Offered Free Legal Aid To Fight DNC Convention Discrimination

You’ve probably seen the reports from RedState’s Ben Howe on the Democratic National Committee discriminating against union-free Charlotte-area businesses on awarding 2012 Convention work, then Charlotte’s Mayor Foxx denying it, only to see the DNC award the Convention work to a Beltway union-company anyway.


You may have also heard the Ritz Carlton, Charlotte employee who was told that he (and other employees) were to be displaced during the DNC’s 2012 Convention to make room for union employees.

[Though his employer allegedly denies it, it is unclear where he and others would have gotten this impression, but through his employer (which does have unionized properties elsewhere).]

As a result of the DNC shenanigans going on to favor their union cronies, the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation is offering Charlotte-area workers free legal assistance to fight the Democrats’ discrimination for the 2012 DNC Convention.

Via the NRTW [emphasis added]:

The National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation, which helps victims of forced unionism, is offering free legal aid to workers who refrain from union membership and may be ordered off their jobs or prevented to work during the 2012 Democratic National Convention scheduled for August 2012 in Charlotte.

In response to media reports, the Right to Work Foundation is offering free legal assistance for nonunion Time Warner Cable Arena, surrounding venue, local hotel, and other area workers who may lose work in favor of unionized workers in the lead up to and during the convention.

Discriminating against workers who exercise their right to refrain from union membership is a clear violation of North Carolinas Right to Work law and the federal National Labor Relations Act.


Whether it’s based on race, sex, religion, creed, national origin, or union membership, discrimination is wrong.

If you are or know someone who is being discriminated against due to exercise their right not to belong to a union, check out the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation’s website.
