Union militants threaten Wisconsin teacher‏

From the IN-BOX this morning. Share on ALL social media:
Union militants are threatening and harassing the courageous charter school teacher who is leading the fight to defend Wisconsin's new government-sector Right to Work law.

With free legal aid from National Right to Work Foundation attorneys, Kristi Lacroix and two other civil servants filed an amicus brief and a motion to intervene against union lawyers' spurious lawsuit seeking to overturn Wisconsin's monopoly bargaining reforms.

WISN-TV in Milwaukee reported that "she has been blistered by negative and vicious emails and phone messages at school and on Facebook, including one suggesting she get protection."

Some militants have even launched a "Fire Kristi" campaign.

As you know, Wisconsin union bosses tried every tactic imaginable to protect Big Labor's monopoly bargaining power over Wisconsin government employees.

They shut down schools, bused in out-of-state agitators, and demanded their allies in the state legislature flee to Illinois to delay a vote.

Then the union bosses wasted millions of dollars -- of their own members' forced dues -- on a failed recall campaign to install a pro-forced unionism majority in the Wisconsin Senate.

Now, union hotheads are bombarding the Kenosha, Wisconsin, teacher with threats because she refuses to toe the union-boss line.

The onslaught of harassment and threats picked up after Lacroix exercised her First Amendment rights and appeared in a TV commercial supporting Governor Scott Walker, who signed the reforms into law.

Other disgraceful messages have threatened Lacroix's career. "Your best bet is to start a job search soon," one militant wrote.

Foundation attorneys are prepared to take all appropriate legal actions to defend Lacroix, and if necessary, provide for the security of her and her family.

In 2005, the National Right to Work Foundation hired 24-hour security for a North Carolina worker who received detailed threats after he successfully challenged a sweetheart deal between his employer and the United Autoworkers (UAW) union.

Union goons routinely employ violence and terror tactics against innocent workers who dare to speak their own minds.

It's vital we expose this thuggery and keep up the legal pressure against the abuses of coercive union power -- including ugly union violence and intimidation.

That's why, if you can, please make a generous, tax-deductible contribution of whatever you can afford to help the Foundation continue to provide free legal aid to Lacroix, expose the injustices of union violence and intimidation to the media, and if necessary, provide Lacroix with professional security.

Union tyrants want to force independent-minded workers like Kristi Lacroix into silence and submission.

But we won't sit by and let that happen.
