Progressive H8ers Abuse Justice

Frivolous labor thugs clog the docket
South Carolina unions filed suit on Thursday against new Republican Governor Nikki Haley and her administration, saying hostility toward unions and workers joining unions is unconstitutional.

The lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court by the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers and the South Carolina AFL-CIO alleges that Haley is violating the federal constitutional and statutory rights to free speech, free association and due process.

South Carolina is one of 22 "Right to Work" states and Haley said she will ensure that South Carolina workers are not compelled to join a union.

"We believe there's no basis to this suit, and if the machinists are offended that the governor doesn't think unions are a good thing in South Carolina, they're just going to have to get used to it," said Gov. Haley's spokesman Rob Gregory.
