AFPF-NJ: My Pay My Say Launches Radio Ad & Mail Drop

Aug 31, 2018 by AFP

TRENTON, NJ – This week, in conjunction with the My Pay My Say national campaign, Americans for Prosperity Foundation dropped mail in teachers’ mailboxes and launched radio advertising letting them know about their newfound rights after the Supreme Court decision Janus v. AFSCME. Americans for Prosperity Foundation – New Jersey State (AFP-NJ) Director, Erica Jedynak, issued the following statement:

“Americans for Prosperity Foundation is thrilled to partner with the Mackinac Center’s national My Pay My Say project to educate government union workers about their newfound rights after the Janus decision. This week, we sent mail with sample opt-out forms to tens of thousands of teachers across the Garden State. Our new radio ad on NJ 101.5 highlights www.MyPayMySay.com/NJ where workers can go to learn more about opting out and get support in doing so.”

The Mackinac Center’s spokesperson Lindsay Killen said:

“The My Pay My Say campaign continues in our commitment to ensure that all public employees are empowered with information about their First Amendment rights to decide whether to continue paying a government union. Teachers, firefighters and other civil servants are our family members, friends, and neighbors, and deserve our ongoing support as they explore the options that are best for themselves and their families. If our government officials, union leaders, or employers will not inform public employees of their constitutional rights, My Pay My Say will stand in the gap until every employee has these rights recognized and respected.”
