California’s public employee unions used their muscle this week to fight back a legislative bid to open their books, killing in committee a bill that would force them to post online how dues are spent — and a second bill requiring a union vote every two years.
“These members want to belong to a union. They want to be represented by a union. They just want to know where their money’s at,” said bill sponsor Assemblywoman Shannon Grove, a Republican.
The two bills went down Wednesday on a party-line vote, after dozens of union members came out against the legislation.
“The whole issue is not so much about these bills, but it’s about right-wing billionaires fighting for their interest and fighting to stymie the rights of the union,” testified Theresa Rutherford, of SEIU local 1021.
