Anti-union campaign planned

Documents disclosed by the London Guardian show state political groups—including the Nevada Policy Research Institute (NPRI)—planning attack campaigns on education, unions, health and taxes. The documents originated with the State Policy Network, which funds conservative groups around the nation. They outline 40 proposals from 34 states.

NPRI applied for $35,000 “to state a campaign informing union members of their right to leave their union. NPRI will research how and when union members can leave their union, then prepare materials to ease the process. NPRI additionally will create videos, publish op-eds, and send mail alerts promoting their material. Success will be determined by the number … who leave the union and the number that elect not to join the union.”
