IL: AT&T worker files charges against CWA

An AT&T worker has filed charges alleging that Communications Workers of America (CWA) union officials threatened to "take him to court" if he didn't participate in a strike, despite his decision to resign from the union.

Union officials also allegedly failed to give McBride a financial breakdown of all union expenditures, a requirement to allow non-union workers to opt out of union dues related to workplace negotiation.

The St. Louis Business Journal said requests for comment out of CWA Local 6300 were not returned.

David McBride's action against the CWA is being supported by the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation, with the organization providing free legal aid.
