Say no to union terrorism.

From The National Right To Work Committee:

Thank you!

As you know, Right to Work supporters across the country had a really good election night.

Pro-Right to Work candidates won eight Senate states we targeted for lobby mobilization, with major victories by Right to Work supporters in virtually every close race.

In the House, in 21 out of 24 races where we raised the issue, the pro-Right to Work candidate was chosen by the voters on Election Day.

All of that means our prospects of forcing a vote on a National Right to Work law, and putting the union bosses' remaining forced-unionism allies on the defensive, have never been better.

Poll after poll shows nearly 80% of the American people agree that it is just plain wrong to force workers to pay union dues as a condition of employment.

And thanks to your help, our Candidate Survey Program made sure the politicians know it too.

But elections are one thing, and having the politicians do as they've promised is another.

That's why it's critical that you and I greet this new Congress with a flood of petitions when they arrive.

If you agree, I hope you'll immediately sign your petition urging your Representative and Senators to support a National Right to Work Act.

Over the past two years, you and I signed up 28 Senators as cosponsors of the National Right to Work Act. That's a good start -- but we must continue to grow that number.

On the House side, the numbers have been strong too. With all the newly elected members who pledged support for Right to Work on the campaign trail, we should be able to exceed this year's 118 cosponsors.

That's no surprise, of course, because in addition to being smart politics, Right to Work is also good public policy.

In fact, study after study has shown that workers in Right to Work states are better off than workers in forced-dues states.

Now it's up to Congress to create a better environment by unshackling all of America from forced-unionism and allowing the economy to thrive.

That's why it's vital you sign your petition urging your Representative and Senators to support a National Right to Work Act.

As you know, forced-unionism has a crippling effect on the nation's competitiveness, preventing hardworking Americans from being as productive as possible, destroying businesses and the jobs they provide, or sending them overseas.

But despite all this, Big Labor is still a major force in Washington.

That's why it's going to take a mobilized army of Right to Work supporters demanding action to recruit a maximum number of cosponsors and ultimately bring this issue to roll-call votes in both Houses of Congress.

The fact is, the union bosses know their agenda is unpopular. Most of their go-to politicians do their best to hide their support for Big Labor's forced-dues agenda.

A roll-call vote on the National Right to Work Act will leave them nowhere to hide.

Every politician will be forced to choose publicly: Vote for freedom, or vote for coercion. Then the American people can hold them accountable.

And they will.

Every time in the last 50 years there has been a high-profile fight in Congress on a forced-unionism issue, Right to Work has gained support on Capitol Hill in the next election.

But it all starts with recruiting the maximum number of cosponsors.

Now that the election is behind us, Congressmen and Senators are planning their agenda for next year, so you and I must flood them with demands for action.

That's why it's vital you sign your petition in support of a National Right to Work Act at once.

But as you know, these petition campaigns cost money, and the pre-election mobilization program we just concluded cost millions.

So after you sign, I hope I can count on you to chip in with a generous contribution of $25, $15 or even $10 today.

We won't be able to drive the Right to Work issue through to a vote in this coming Congress without you.

Thanks again for your continued dedication to Right to Work.

Sincerely,

Mark Mix
President

P.S. In the next two years we have our best opportunity in nearly a decade to put the union bosses' allies in Congress on the defensive.

So please, sign your petition to your Congressman and Senators TODAY, urging them to cosponsor and seek roll-call votes on the National Right to Work Act.

And if possible, please consider chipping in with a $25, $15 or even $10 contribution today!
