A growing number of Local 1000 members are returning their Knox case refund checks to help fund our political activity because they recognize that politics matter for our families, in our communities and shape the workplace for state workers.
Retired Unit 3 member Gunnar H. Jensen received a check in the mail as a result of the Supreme Court ruling made in 2012 and opted to return the money to Local 1000's Committee on Political Education political action fund.
"I returned that check because it was the right thing to do. In 2005, Local 1000 fought hard and beat the propositions that would have rendered us politically impotent," Jensen said. "Our Union needs those funds to fight against constant attacks on the working class."
