ST. PAUL – AFP Minnesota, the nation’s premier economic freedom advocate, today applauds the Minnesota Senate Judiciary and Public Safety Committee for passing the Freedom of Employment Act today with a vote of 7 to 6.
"Americans for Prosperity-Minnesota is pleased that common-sense legislation is being advanced that will provide employees the right to decide whether or not to join a union without fear of losing their job," said John Cooney, Minnesota State Director of Americans for Prosperity.
"Forced unionization deprives workers of economic freedom and hard-earned income whether or not they want to be in a union, the Freedom of Employment Act will restore the right to retain one's wage without affecting the unions' collective bargaining ability," continued Cooney.
March 12, 2012, the Minnesota Senate Judiciary Committee held its first hearing on the Employee Freedom Amendment in Minnesota. AFP's John Cooney captured this video footage. Click here to read more about the hearing.
