The National Right to Work Foundation has posted an excellent example of what commonly happens to workers who oppose today's union bosses by refraining from union membership.
Ironically, the case involved the alma mater of yours truly, the Communications Workers of America (CWA). As a former CWA union 'enforcer' in a Right-to-Work state, it is not hard to believe how these workers were intimidated, as non-union workers were a constant targeted in our local union.
Although the union called them 'membership drives,' it was nothing more than a pure campaign of targeting these workers through persuasion, intimidation (especially for those who crossed our picket line in 1986) and, in some cases, unlawful extortion as non-members would routinely have their grievances conveniently 'dropped' if they refused to sign up.
Additionally, non-members had their names routinely published at the union hall and given to the union stewards in eacd department while bounties of $15 per card were offered to any member who would get the "free-loaders" or "scabs" (as they were commonly referred to as) to sign up with the union.
Although publishing social security numbers is not something that I can recall, the workers in this video are sharing with you what was, in our case, not beyone the bounds of propriety.
Note: While these workers (and those who work in the 22 Right-to-Work states) are still legally able to refrain from union membership, their rights may soon be eliminated by a secretly introduced bill in Congress that, if enacted, will eliminate their right-to-work status.
