Anti-worker groups have consistently exploited contentious political issues to mislead members and encourage members to leave their union – and we expect them to continue doing so. Their tactics have misrepresented SEIU’s stance on law enforcement funding and our political spending.

Here’s how you can fight back:

1. Share this toolkit with your coworkers  

2. Display at work your “Proud Union Member Works/Lives Here” Placard. Download here. 

3. Report Emails as Spam! 

a. FORWARD THE EMAIL

Send to these three addresses, all in one email:

Write:

“The Freedom Foundation/Opt Out Today sent me this SPAM at work without my permission. Please ask them to stop sending emails to me.”

b. MARK THE EMAIL AS ‘SPAM’ OR ‘JUNK’

In most cases, this automatically sends a warning message to their email provider.

4. If you choose to respond to their email, here is a suggested response:  

“Hello. Please stop contacting me. I love having a good union job with guaranteed raises and benefits. I don’t like when corporate-funded hacks bother me at work and try to rob me of my hard-earned benefits.” 

5. Do not share their materials on social media or with coworkers- we don’t want to give them more attention than they deserve. 

6. Report any suspicious activity to your URC rep or the MRC. 

Together we can fight back against anti-worker organizations!
