Thank you for joining the Texas Business Coalition!
TBC represents the interests of Texas business owners who believe government should play no role in promoting unions in Texas. Our mission is to stop the practice by our state agencies of serving as a dues collector for unions.
We will accomplish this by ensuring passage in the next legislature of a bill to prohibit this practice. We will educate business owners in Texas about how national unions like the SEIU and AFSCME are using payroll deductions from our state and municipal employees to fund campaigns against Texas businesses. We will also work with legislators to draft and pass legislation, and with other organizations in the state to ensure the bill becomes law.
We know that most Texans are on our side. A 2015 poll by Keep Texas Working showed that 62% of registered voters oppose government involvement in collecting dues for labor unions. Even a majority of union members support our cause—57% in the same poll said they believe the current practice constitutes a conflict of interest for government.
We will keep you posted with email bulletins about our progress and important news about this issue. If you’d like to take a larger role in our efforts or have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks again for your support!
