A Catholic woman filed a federal discrimination complaint alleging that a major labor union forced her to pay for its pro-abortion activism.
In a complaint to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Tennessee resident Dorothy Frame said that Laborers’ International Union of North America (LiUNA) has forced her to pay union dues, despite her request for a religious exemption.
“Ms. Frame is a Catholic, and she believes that she should not support a labor union that supports abortion, because abortion involves the unjustified destruction of human life,” the filing says.
After learning about the group’s support of pro-abortion initiatives and politicians, Frame requested a religious accommodation on July 25, 2019. The accommodation would stop the deduction of union dues from Frame’s paychecks from J&J Worldwide Services. In August, the union denied her request and responded by demanding evidence for her claims that membership in the union violated her religious beliefs and that the union supports pro-abortion initiatives.
