-California: Unions Against Traditional Marriage?

by Dr. D ~ February 2nd, 2009

AFL-CIO

(-Logo via Wikipedia)

Now a bunch of different unions in California have joined in the war to overturn Prop. 8- The Traditional Marriage Amendment.

AFL-CIO, Teamsters, SEIU, Communications Workers of America, United Steel Workers, California Nurses Association, the Screen Actors Guild, and the California and American Federations of Teachers have joined forces filing a brief before the California Supreme Court to overturn the proposition and make same-sex marriage legal in California once more.

Response: The majority of the members of those unions probably voted for Prop 8 (well maybe not members of the Screen Actors Guild). Now the unions are using their own dues against their own members to overthrow the election results? I guess the will of the people and the will of their own members no longer means anything to these leftist so-called ‘secular-progressive’ social engineering union leaders.

For you millions of Christians who are members of these unions, it is really time to stand up and protest the use of your very own union dues being used against you. I know, a lot of you teachers have gotten use to your union doing stuff like this, but what about you Teamsters and Steel Workers, is this really the way that you want your union to represent you?           *Top

    If the righteous one’s refuse to speak now, obviously, the unrighteous shall prevail. This is how they have been taking away institution after institution in the USA.

    Yeah, when I found out CTA put so much money into Prop 8, I wasn’t happy. I wrote letters to the editor and all.

    As far as I can tell, here’s how the teacher’s union came to endorse the no on 8 campaign:

    Schools elect union reps. These reps meet in Sacramento, and when there’s a question of how the union spends its funds and what its to endorse, there is sometimes a debate between the reps…sometimes not. If not, the decision goes to a 10 member board.

    In this case, it seems the reps themselves did vote on it, and voted to endorse “no on 8.” This just underscores the fact that those in unions (me) need to pay more attention to who they select to represent them. I’ve been complacent in that for too long.

    Thanks Rich–at least the CTA apparently voted on it. Most unions don’t bother to take even a rudimentary pulse of their members on issues. I do wonder how union members feel that their unions are pursuing the matter even after the electorate has spoken–and are continuing to spend union funds on the issue?
